I'm William. I am a Software Developer from Peoria, Illinois.
Programming has been my passion since middle school. To my parents' dismay, I have always had a penchant for taking things apart to learn how they work. However, a screwdriver only gets you so far when taking apart a computer. I wanted to learn how the ones and zeros worked. I picked up a few languages while I was in middle and high school, but I was predominantly drawn to C-like languages.
After high school, I went on to study Computer Science at Bradley University. There I had the opportunity to refine my skills and also interact with many amazing people. I picked up many skills during my time there, such as web design, computer architecture, computational theory, and security. During this time, I also had the opportunity to contribute to research and work on genome databases. In May of 2017, I graduated with a Master of Science degree in Computer Science.
In my free time, I am often studying graphics programming or tinkering with my homelab.
