About Me

I am currently an undergraduate student at Illinois Tech pursuing both my BS and MS degrees in Computer Science. When I am not in front of a computer writing code or staring at my 3D printer waiting for the print to fail, I can probably be found enjoying a nice, relaxing anime or reading a light novel.

    My personal website.

    Since web development is still one of my favorite hobbies to date, I like to play around my own website and adding weird and interesting features for experimentation.

    Currently, it has a working simultaneous video synchronization service for "watching videos together" with other people on the Internet. Besides this, I use this website to experiment on other HTML5 features including a music player, asynchronous file uploads and downloads as well as possibly exploring WebGL and other 3D engines for web game development in the future.

Additional code snippets and projects are available on my GitHub and Bitbucket account.
