About Owen

I'm a Senior at Clemson University studying Computer Information Systems, an amateur developer, an IT professional, and a choral musician. I have experience in Systems Administration, and I'm looking for a career in Software Engineering; ideally, systems and embedded development. I'm most comfortable with the C, Python, and JavaScript programming languages, and I'm thoroughly familiar with all manner of operating systems and server software. I've also performed with elite choirs around the country and internationally at venues such as Carnegie Hall and the Sydney Opera House.

Projects

At the moment, my specialty is building small, niche utility programs to solve problems only I have, but, as you can see from the line-by-line comments in most of my code, my code is clean. If any recruiters are reading this, I promise I've learned the error of my ways when it comes to commenting.
