I was born in Charlotte, North Carolina, and I currently live in Durham, North Carolina. I’m a sophomore at Duke University, and I intend to double major in Computer Science and Electrical & Computer Engineering.
I have always loved building things, mostly because I love seeing all of my work manifest itself in the final product. I also enjoy working with a partner or on a team and getting to the point where all of our individual efforts come together to make something so much bigger than any fraction of us could have done on our own. My love for building has heavily influenced my choice of majors. Even though digital construction is far less tangible than its physical counterpart, there is still very much a finished product at the end of a build.
For example, in my most recent build, my class of 37 students worked together for four weeks to create a video game engine that makes it easier for developers to create video games and a video game arcade that makes it easier both for developers to get their games noticed and for gamers to play those incredible games. It certainly was not an easy task, and at times it was quite stressful making sure all 37 of us were on the same page and moving in the right direction. However, in the end we produced an incredible final product that all of us were truly proud of. Weighing in at over 60,000 lines of code, there is no way that any fraction of us could have accomplished the task on our own. To see more about this project, click on the “Projects” tab.
This site is mostly a chronicle of the projects and builds that I am proud to say that I have completed. If you have any questions about any of them or would like to know more about them or me, please feel free to contact me.
