About Me

Back in '09 while attending SUNY Oswego, fully intending to go to law school I decided to take an intro computer science course. I crushed it and was hooked (There goes law school). Ever since then all I can think about is solving problems using computers. I hope to change the world one day. Until then I will be hacking away.
