Some basic autobiographical information so other editors know my level of expertise and possible biases.
Born in Texas, I moved to Michigan at five, and homeschooled until I graduated at sixteen. To mitigate the age gap, I created my own curriculum focused on computer science and convinced my parents to allow me to spend the next year studying software development, data structures, algorithms, and software architecture. Under the dual enrollment program, I also took electrical engineering courses at Grand Rapids Community College. Most of my free time was spent participating in internet groups with a focus on writing software.
I began dabbling in QuickBASIC around age eleven. By thirteen I was participating in game development communities as a novice scriptwriter in Lua. I taught myself C# when I invited to join the esteemed Halo modding team "HaloDev," formerly located at halodev.org. I poured my spare time into developing tools for video games, specializing in reverse engineering their proprietary binary formats.
I played the flute throughout middle and high school. I came to enjoy the fine arts, reading classical literature (my personal favorite being Alexandre Dumas' The Count of Monte Cristo), and practicing amateur music composition, acting, and poetry composition.
Now in my young adulthood, I have become something of a compulsive autodidactic learner with eclectic set of interests, examples including:
- Classical literature
- History (esp. War)
- Mythology (esp. Greek mythology)
- Psychology and Neuroscience
- Computer Science
