I am a sophomore majoring in Computer Science at DePauw University. The field deeply interests me and I am finding new ways to teach myself new skills and improve my abilities. I have worked on projects outside of the classroom that include Android Applications and experimenting with website design.

I am also an Eagle Scout and am constantly looking for ways to improve myself and the projects that I am working on. I have held leadership positions in my High School's National Honor Society, the Boy Scouts of America, the DePauw Open Source Development Club, and Delta Upsilon Fraternity. This range of organizations helps give me unique perspectives on problems and their solutions.
