My face
Hello there!
I'm a computer science student and programmer living in Boston, Massachusetts.

About

I'm a fourth year computer science student at Northeastern University. I work hard and make things.

In my free time, I like to hack on my own projects, like my army of Twitter bots. I open source all of my code, and you can check it out on Github!

I am an active editor of the English Wikipedia, where I'm an administrator and arbitrator.

Projects

GorillaBot

GorillaBot is a Python IRC bot framework that can be extended to perform custom actions.

Twitter bots

I have a small contingent of Twitter bots that occasionally spit out funny tweets.

Easyreader

Easyreader is some custom CSS and JavaScript that makes Wikipedia articles more comfortable to read.

Streampicker

Streampicker is an alarm clock I created to boot my desktop and show me a Twitch stream I enjoy.

Brandeis

Brandeis is a tool to semi-automatically convert HTML court cases into Wikitext, and then upload them to the English Wikisource.

Wikisource-to-LaTeX

Wikisource-to-LaTeX is a Python project to convert the Pentagon Papers from the English Wikisource into a LaTeX document.

Work

At Northeastern University, I have the opportunity do three six-month-long co-ops.

I did my second co-op at HubSpot, a company that develops an inbound marketing software platform. I worked as a frontend developer on the reporting team, where I developed and maintained some of HubSpot's analytics tools. I used CoffeeScript, jade and Handlebars, and SASS.

I did my first co-op in January—June 2013, working as a software developer at NxStage Medical, Inc., a renal care device company. My focus was web connectivity for one of their devices; I developed the user experience for connecting the device to a wireless network, and I helped integrate an embedded HTTP server into the system. I primarily used C, C++, and HTML/CSS/JavaScript.

In the summer of 2013, I participated as a student in Google Summer of Code. I worked with the Wikimedia Foundation to develop the BookManagerv2 extension. This extension will support wikis that host book content by allowing the content to be organized and structured. I wrote this primarily in PHP and Javascript.
