PrivacyBadger (Contributor)

At the beginning of my 2019 fall semester, I was looking for open source projects to contribute to and decided that it would be cool to work on something that I actually use. I took a look through PrivacyBadger's issues, picked one, and closed it.


Interests

By day, a college student dedicated to his studies. By night (and weekends), an avid rock climber, hiker, camper, backpacker, and photographer.

When I'm spending time inside, I'm usually either programming, playing video games, editing photos, or watching whatever show I'm trying to finish. I also enjoy reading, listening to music, and tinkering.
