The Alchemist

I make pixels dance. I write programs and poetry. I am a creator.
Shall I perform for you?

Musical Composition

I play and compose acoustically and electronically.

Nerd Work

I coax machines into doing my bidding.
I'm great at coaxing.

I was (not quite legally) given the position of network administrator for my high school after successfully defending the school's network from a series of attacks including an internal DDOS. I was promoted from the student assistant team to the senior support team at my University's Helpdesk after demostrating an exploit that revealed the passwords of several important employees as well as providing a recommendation to fix the issue. I have worked full time as a programmer and designer for multiple companies simultaneously while maintaining business critical systems successfully.

About

A deeper look into the Abyss
Careful, Thar be Monsters.

I was born hungry and alone on the cold dark streets of Baltimore city. Armed with only my thirst for knowledge and my razor sharp wit; I forged my own path to programming success in the fires of determination and raw unadulterated passion. Before I could walk, programmatically placing the correct shape in the correct hole was no challenge for me. Color matching was a breeze.

A few years later while my peers learned to ride bikes without training wheels; I used my trusty Commadore 64 to load, play, troubleshoot and eventually modify games and programs. I spoke the LOGO and BASIC languages of the Elder computing Druids before my first English class; commanding that little turtle-thing to do my bidding. I named my imaginary friend "2600" not because of the painfully unprogrammable Atari game console, but because of my hero: the legendary hacker Capt'n Crunch; also known as John Draper, the man who taught Wozniak and Jobs before they started Apple. He also wrote and sold IBM their first word processing program, beating Bill Gates to the punch! He actually wrote the word processor (EasyWriter) for Apple while serving jail time and then ported the program to IBM's PC, but I digress. I spent summers studying design principals for fun.

My artistic eye is unparalleled. My dedication to design is as decadent as this demonstrative description. My creativity is completely uncapped. I have breathed computing since birth. I program like a paranoid parakeet. Nonstop. I am the rabid raccoon of re-development. I am consumed by code. I have built myself for electronic greatness from the ground up. There is no institution on Earth involved with computing or design that would not benefit from having me as a member of the team.
