Hello, World!

My name is Alex and I'm from a small town in Wisconsin. A few states away in Washington State & at the University of Puget Sound is where I decided to pursue a bachelor of science in computer science.

Coursework

My coursework has mostly consisted of computer science classes including introduction to computer science, data structures, discreet mathematics, computer architecture and assembly language, computer graphics, software engineering, network programming, principles of concurrent programming, database management systems, and operating systems.

Web Development

I am a web developer and artist and I learned the fundamentals of web development especially in my software engineering course at the University of Puget Sound. The unique approach I take to web development is influenced by my artistic creativity. It is important to note that I consider myself to be proficient in JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. Also noteworth, I have experience with full stack development including Mongo, Express, Angular, and Node; I am a back-end systems administrator -> I manage my web hosting on my own Linux machines.

mononoke.io has been an experimental personal blog-style site. The site includes personal projects and podcasts. On the site I leverage a number of technologies including Paper.js, Materialize, OpenGL, etc.

socialrec.org

socialrec.org is a registration template which includes registration/sign-in forms for a user model. This style of site may use some database management system in order to manage user profiles.

Dvorak Keyboard

The dvorak keyboard was created in my computer graphics course, where we worked near exclusively in javascript and in the web-browser.

Graphic Design

At both The University of Wisconsin and at Western Washington University I have studied graphic design. I have experience in GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP), Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Three.JS, Blender, and Paper.js. Below you'll find a number of pieces that I created using Three.js, Illustrator, and/or Photoshop for a graphic design course that I took at Western Washington University. In this same course, I also studied some fundamentals of layering and printmaking.

Ceramic Art

The throwing wheel teaches patience at least. I'm very proud to consider myself to be an amateur ceramic artist. I especially enjoy throwing porcelain on the wheel. I have been a member of the Puget Sound Ceramics Club for the last two academic years.
