Who I Am and Why I'm Here

Growing up in Maine helped foster a strong appreciation for nature, but it also gave me a lot of time to explore my technical side. My passion for technology was ignited when I got my first 700mHz PC early in high school. Eventually, I saved up enough to build my own computer and begin exploring the ins and outs of Windows. Later, in college I started using Linux alongside Windows for security purposes and ideological principles. Today, I have a great appreciation for well-designed hardware, and I'm developing my software abilities during my free time. I also am a digital explorer and can preach the benefits of cryptocurrency and all the amazing new projects that are coming to fruition each day. All of this technical prowess comes alongside a great appreciation for writing, marketing, designing, and creating. If you don't have time to talk to me and listen to my sales pitch on the benefits of decentralization, read one of my articles about it. Put a camera in my hand, and I'll take an incredible photo and later turn it into a product you can use every day. Essentially, I love new ideas that seek to reshape our world through efficiency, fairness, creativity, and pure magic.

Personal qualities

Creative

Art class was always my favorite. I can paint, draw, and create digital works of art. Sometimes I simply prefer to capture the beauty that's already in the world through my photography.

Analytical Research Wizard

Mention something you saw online once, and I'll find it for you in a heartbeat. Tell me about a trend you've noticed, and I'll expound on where I see things going in ten years. Don't worry; I won't say I told you so.

Multitasker

Obviously my dedication is unrivaled, but at the same time, why settle for one project alone? Even if I only have five minutes per day to devote to a new idea, rest assured I'll keep developing it.

Time Master

The work day doesn't stop at 5pm. I use every minute of my days with purpose and know the importance of time management and resource allocation. Message me at any hour.
