I love to learn and so I wish to further not only my knowledge in programming, but all fields of study. I have a strong work ethic, an ambitious attitude, the ability to overcome obstacles, and willing to learn to make anything happen.


I have 3+ years of programming experience in C/C++. Using these languages, I have written my own Libraries/API's. One of these is a singly and doubly linked list API which is written in C++11 and are template classes. I have learned how to write effective libraries in a robust language that will also stand the test of time. Along with these little projects, I have also written, from scratch, my own Tic-Tac-Toe game ( Written completely in C++ using only Win32 and OpenGL. I also have experience using other languages such as:
  • Java
  • PHP
  • HTML
  • CSS
  • JavaScript
  • AJAX

I have written an Android application for personal use and a Minecraft modification using Java. My Minecraft modification can be found here:
I have written a many scripts in PHP which access custom databases, access files, do calculations, etc. They can be found on a Minecraft server website ( Server/). The sidebar contains a simple script that pings a Minecraft server and reports the number of people logged in, who they are, the port it is running on, and the latency from the site to the server.
I have also built my home page ( without the help of external tools. I wrote all the HTML and CSS by hand (in notepad).
