I graduated from Oregon State University with a four(ish)-year degree in Computer Science, a focus toward Cryptography, and a minor in Mathematics on December of 2017.


For about 3 years I ran and mentored the Oregon State University Linux Users Group (osulug). We hosted

  • Industry Professionals like CoreOS and Nordstrom engineers to speak with students about internships and
  • Student Talks where club members gave talks on Raspberry Pi projects, software projects, Thesis Defense practice.
  • Install Festivals where we helped people install Linux.
  • Coding Puzzles where we are challenged to finish coding puzzles and rewarded for completing the most.
  • Game Hackathon where we teamed up to complete a small working game in under an hour.
  • Languages Night where we had a round-table to talk about software development.

The LUG stayed busy.
