In fifty words or less, describe yourself.
I am an artist, developer, and student. I like to experience and combine multiple methods of expression and focus mainly on painting, DJ’ing, photography, music production, and pottery. I am also an ordained minister and hold a knighthood in my spare time.
What is the coolest thing you have done in your studies as a CM major?
For my senior design option, I chose being a part of the Vertically Integrated Projects program in the ECE School. Over two semesters and with a team of three other students, we created an Arduino based device that can hear ambulance sirens and car horns for deaf and hard of hearing drivers. It then displays which type of noise it heard as well as what direction it came from.
What are your professional goals?
I hope to one day own and operate my own communal creative space for whatever community I end up putting down my roots, as well as working both in my own creative pursuits as well as in the software development field. Gotta pay the bills somehow.
In one sentence, explain why students should choose the CM major.
It’s the artistic and creative freedom of Ivan Allen with the technical experience of the College of Computing.
