What I do outside of Fedora (in FOSS)

  • I love learning about programming paradigms, particularly Functional Programming.
    • Along with that, I love learning the math behind it. Type theory and category theory are enjoyable. :)
  • I maintain a small number of Ruby Gems.
  • I created (and very badly need to re-create in another language some day) http://da.gd/ and the "framework" that powers it.
  • I sometimes contribute to Facebook's Phabricator project in my spare time.

Non-software things that I do

  • I am a part-time student, currently majoring in CS at Youngstown State University.
    • I am the former Vice President for W8UPD, The University of Akron's Amateur Radio Club.
    • I am the former Vice President for ACM at UAkron.
  • I am a founder of The SYN/HAK Hackerspace in Akron, Ohio.
  • I am learning Guitar in my free time.
