Summary

Programming is art. It involves the same process of creation and careful planning before a project can be started. The language is the canvas, and a mixture of data structures, algorithms, and code comprise the medium. A well written software project invokes the same feelings of satisfaction and creation as a completed design project.

As a driven and personable Computer Science student, I thrive in environments that push me to work through complex problems while supported by the collaboration of a team. I strive to not only create working solutions to the tasks I am presented with, but to do it in a way that most efficiently uses the limits of hardware platforms.
