Once upon a time, this site hosted a variety of my programming projects. Nowadays, most of my projects are either commercial or too limited in scope to justify posting. I considered retiring Alloscomp, but I've made this domain name a part of both my online and offline identities. As such, I've decided to merely reorganize the home page.

A Bit About Me

I'm a 23-year-old Electrical Engineering student at the University of Cincinnati. I expect to graduate in 2014 with a BSEE, an MBA, and a minor in Mathematics. College has been a great experience for me, allowing me to grow and learn as an independent citizen of society. Lately, my time has been more and more dominated by school and work; when I have free time, I spend it exploring the campus, socializing with my friends, and finishing the ever-growing list of programs that I want to write. I also tutor undergraduate EE, CE, and CS students in introductory C++ programming classes. Though I'm not particularly skilled at any of these, I do enjoy skiing, cycling, and rock climbing. I've done some of my best thinking cycling around campus late at night.

I've held an amateur radio licence since 10/10/2002, first under the callsign KC8UWJ, then under WI3G. Visit my amateur radio homepage for more details.

I also have a Lauchpad profile. I'm not an active programmer with the Ubuntu project, but I use Debian and Ubuntu on most of my computers. The way I see it, once you know one Debian-based distribution, you know them all. I currently run Arch Linux on my main laptop because it's light, fast, and free. Also, once you've used Linux for programming, you can never go back!

Selected Projects

Contracting Work

Most of my work lately has been on the Zinc project. Zinc is an awesome API for shipping products from Amazon (other merchants under development). If you've got a great idea, come check it out!
