Welcome to my cyber garage. You can find information about me and some of my projects here.
I am a creative business-oriented web-developer. I specialize in design, front-end web development, Bitcoin and blockchain applications.
This is my personal website and experimental sandbox. Currently based in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

I was heavily facinated by computing and the web as a child, and began working in web-development as a hobby in 2006 (age 16) with great supported by teachers at State College Area High School in State College, Pennsylvania. (2007)
At 19, I won first place at a product idea design contest hosted by the KAIROS entrepreneurship society at Pennsylvania State University and sponsored by Bulbstorm.com (before its acquisition) - My winning project was for an audio-input laser projector as a live visualizer. (2009)
I created StudentWindow.com, a student blog that hosted discussions on sports, especially the 2010 world cup. It was purchased from me one year later. (2010)
In 2011, I began to freelance as a graphic designer for print and advertising campaigns, including video-editing work for local friends and artists. I also designed logos and T-Shirts for multiple school organizations at Penn State University.(2011)
By 2012, I had many projects online at the time to try to monetize the web. I focused on being an Amazon.com Associate and Shop.com Distributor. I created SEO'd blogs and ran a small online marketplace to sell Shop.com and Amazon-reffered products (2008-2013)
In 2013, I experimented with creating a car color changing service using temporary removable rubber paint. I painted about two cars per week for friends and family. Did not have time to scale as a full time student, and wasn't allowed to make it as work as an international student so I stopped a few months later.
In 2014 I moved to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Where I started working for a consulting company specializing in Surveying, polling and analysis (2014-2016). I also began studying Computer Science at Prince Sultan University (2015-Ongoing).
On November 2016, I lead the tech team and won StartUpWeekend in Utrecht, a 52-hour startup-hackathon. Our Idea evolved into what is now Tykn.nl; a digital document authentication and verification service, using the bitcoin blockchain's proof of existence.
I am looking to meet potential mentors, VCs, and investors to sponsor some of my larger entrepreneurial ideas. Meanwhile, I am open to doing part time freelance and contractual work.
