Project Exploration

I explore amazing topics like Facial Recognition, Facial Authentication, and Object Detection using OpenCV, Homebrewing on the Xbox360 and the Wii U, using Docker to Run a Massive 50 Container Minecraft Server network to combat the 40+ player limit of java Minecraft Server software, Autonomous robots, Home Automation, and Self Driving cars using a Raspi and CANbus hat to remotely control my car.

Passion for Inovating

I believe that anything can be improved and modified. Why not add more functionality to a device that lacks it. I encourage Innovation in my daily life by Embracing my autism, my heightened creativity, my out of the box thinking and problem-solving skills. One of my favorite quotes is from Edwin Land "Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way”. If you have an inovative idea, act on that idea and make it a reality.

Zest For Programming

Man, Programming is fantastic :). I can invent new programs & create them from nothing, Solve Problems, and Completely Add functionality to already existing Systems. An example of Innovation is my Face-Door project, I took a Raspi, a relay, and my existing security system to create a Facial Recognition Door. It sounds an alarm if an unrecognized person shows up, and lets in recognized people, also it allows one to 2 unrecognized people in with the recognized personal. The limit is my imagination, that is why I love Developing Software.
