About Me

I’m a graduate student at Stanford University, where I’m studying Electrical Engineering with an emphasis on signal and image processing. I received my bachelor’s degree in Computer Engineering from Oklahoma Christian University in the spring of 2011.

In my free time, I enjoy just about anything outside. Most often, it’s hiking, cycling, running, sailing, or geocaching. I’m proud to not own a car (for now), and am happy getting around on my bike. I enjoy technical projects, especially anything where I can pull out a soldering iron or a wrench and also write some code. I was heavily involved in FIRST LEGO League and the FIRST Robotics Competition as a student, and continued to mentor a team in college.

About this site

This site is an attempt to pull together my many projects, ideas, and writings, and fill a role that a blog or Facebook can’t.

On the technical side, the site is hosted on GitHub Pages, using Jekyll to produce static HTML. You can read a little more about the development process in my blog post.

I’ve tried a variety of setups in the past, including plain-vanilla HTML, a custom PHP setup, and Jemdoc. I’m also attracted to the ease-of-use that WordPress offers, but right now I really like the simplicity of plain text and the idea of having my website be a version-controlled repository. If you want to see the source, here it is.
