Some useful (and not so useful) information about me...
I live in Vancouver, Canada. I am pursuing a degree in Computer Science at the University of British Columbia. I enjoy working with people who view programming as both an artistic and scientific endeavour. I use they/them pronouns online (in person they might be different). I like cats. I like reading. I like computers.
I taught myself how to program in elementary school. I taught myself PHP and started working with PocketMine, the company which creates server software for Minecraft Pocket Edition. I built the majority of the plugins for Minecraft Pocket Edition servers, which have amassed millions of downloads. I was hired by several of the largest server companies to work on their servers.
I have experience coordinating and working with remote teams. I competed in my first Hackathon with a completely remote team (Canada, Taiwan, and Australia) and our team was a finalist. I also co-founded and was co-preseident of the Computer Science club at my school and coordinated our first Hour of Code event.
I enjoy helping clients solve problems. I pride myself in the support I provide to the users of my software. I have experience moderating content at the Minecraft Forum, PocketMine forums, Wikipedia, and Minecraft Seeds. Each of those sites has millions of users and delivering effective customer support is a fast paced and difficult job.
I like literature a lot. I have read a ton of books and I hope to read a ton more. My favourite right now is "The Shadow of the Wind".
I have a passion for Shakespeare. I have volunteered for the Shakespeare festival in my city for the past three years and I have been taking classes there for the past five years. I have played roles such as Henry V and Horatio. You can probably find some pictures of me online wearing various costumes.
- I built a website to store all of Shakespeare's plays in a new and accessible XML, that's on GitHub.
- I built an app from my local Shakespeare festival to engage audience members.
- I designed the tabulation and executed the tabulation of hundreds of surveys for Bard on the Beach.
- I made a cute visualition and wrote an essay about the social order in King Lear.
