About Me

I am a software/web developer from the United States that has built an assortment of projects. Some of these projects are more finished than others, and these projects can vary greatly. Some of these projects are games, some are websites, some are mobile apps, some are even just utilities. A few of my projects are even open sourced for others to use and contribute to. My languages of choice include C and C++, Python, and more recently, D. I am well versed in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, and can make, in my mind, some very nice looking designs. Some technologies I've used for web-based projects include the Django web framework and Node.js. Additionally, with my projects in C/C++, I've used OpenGL and DirectX, as well as used a bit of the Windows API.


The section below contains a list of projects that I find are noteworthy and worth a mention. Some of these projects are open-sourced, some may not be (though, a good amount are).


An Android application for rapid communication by recording your voice or the sounds around you. Only for Android, and still in development. Though, you can go to the website and see what the app currently looks like and what to expect from it when it fully releases.


CTML is a simple, open source HTML document constructor written in C++ using only the standard library. Written in modern C++11, and blazing fast, so that you can generate your documents for say, a dynamic web server, or something of the sort in no time.


A very simple and speedy server written in D. Uses only the standard library, as well as the standard sockets. Open sourced for anyone to contribute to and use. Additionally, well documented for easy setup and usage.


mcv is a command line tool that allows you to convert an obj file to a lrb file. It is also a library that adds a loader for the lrb format.

The lrb format is a simple model format to be used in video games, or any other graphical application that depends on load speed. It is a binary format that includes the simple attributes for a vertex. Made for a game that I was developing awhile ago that I stopped working on.


Mallard is a data format that includes strong typing. This includes the keywords bool, int, decimal, string. Along with the specification for the format, a reference parser and reader is included in the repository, written in C++11.
