Hey there! My name is TJ and I am a student at the University at Buffalo pursuing a degree in Computer Science. I love technology and learning. I find computers and electronics fascinating a, looking for ways to broaden my knowledge every day. I am interested in programming and network security such as ethical hacking and penetration testing. I also like tinkering with electronics during my free time. I am hoping to graduate and get a job in cyber security or as a software engineer. I am also planning on going on to pursue a graduate degree in either artificial intelligence or cognitive science. When I'm not messing around with computers I love to read in my spare time. Fantasy, cyber-punk, and non-fiction are a few of my favorite genres. I highly recommend anyone to take a look at anything writen by Noam Chomsky, my favorite intellectual and the father of Linguistics and Cognitive Science. I try to stay active as much as possible and am very passionate about snowboarding and hiking. Finding a balance between screens and nature is important to me. I am optimistic about the future and hope that an education from a top research university and my own curiosity will open many doors for me.
