Activities Outside Of Work

Current Projects

Taking photographs and video of live performances, architecture, landscapes, nature, conventions, and protests.

Past Projects

Created Several webscraping scrips, written in Python, used for collecting investment information for ETFs, Mutual Funds, and Stocks; for examples, one script is for investigative purposes on prospective investments while another script is for current investments across several financial institutions [e.g. Vanguard, Charles Schwab, Fidelity, &c]. Data such as current stock price and industry distribution are included in the output data.

Created a Python script to encrypt, decrypt personal "secret messages" based on a simple methodology I created long ago.

Created multiple lamps, analogue clocks, metal statues, and diorama sculptures from salvaged and new materials.
