About Me

Who Am I

I’m a college student somewhere in Colorado who is focusing on Computer Science. I’ve been using Linux for over 10 years and am a huge proponent of free and open source software. Most of the software I right gets published using the GPLv3 or MIT license, allowing for free reuse with attribution.

I also love competitive video games, namely Overwatch and Team Fortress 2.

Current Focus

This summer, most of my focus is devoted to reverse engineering. Teaching myself both x86 assembly and ARM aarch64 assembly, and reverse engineering a given sample. I have a masochistic love towards assembly and include it as optimized sections of my C++ homework.
