tl;dr Me! I'm a third-year computer science major at UC Berkeley with a veritable grab-bag of talents.
Although I was originally enamored by the concept of embedded systems, my studies haven't yet taken me further than a couple of basic Arduino projects. Instead, I've busied myself by learning a bit of everything: computer architecture, data structures, animation... I can't quite say "you name it" yet, but I think I'm getting there! While I may not have the deepest experience with any particular facet of computer science, I've acquired a relatively broad set of abilities and I really do believe I have the base skillset to accomplish just about anything. Summer 2016 update: For the present (/the foreseeable future), I've selected graphics and AI as my fields of concentration.
The best part is that I'm far from done: the learning never stops. If you have something for me to put my mind to, please let me know. I'm game for anything, as long as it doesn't involve criminal activities or supermarket bagels.
I live a pretty exciting life. For a comprehensive list of mountains I've climbed, airplanes I've jumped off of, and cameras I've coolly smiled at, take a look at my résumé... but don't be too disappointed if, say, it was really just a bunch of schools I've attended and awards I've won. ;)
As a computer scientist-in-training, I've picked up a few computer-related skills:
Here's a list of languages with which I've had some form of exposure. Keep in mind that each label is relative to me and my own degree of experience:
I have a decent level of experience with each of the following:
Due to the possibility of plagiarism, I'm unable to post my code for these projects. However, if you would like further information about any of them, I'd be more than happy to answer your questions!

University of California, Berkeley
Expected Graduation Date: May 2018
B.A. Computer Science [GPA: 3.9]
As mentioned before, I'm currently a junior at UC Berkeley. Go Bears!
Apart from classes, I've spent time assisting in laboratory sections (for CS 61A and CS 61C) and as a member of the web development committee for my honors society, Upsilon Pi Epsilon. I've also been involved as a volunteer with several events – for example Engineering 4 Kids Day, during which I explained the code behind physics simulations to 4th-6th graders, and the Berkeley Math Tournament.
Hold up – I don't spend 100% of my day writing programs and taking classes, I swear.
I mean, I sleep* and eat* too.
On the real though, I really enjoy roasting vegetables, throwing Frisbees, and defeating people at Super Smash Bros [Melee, Project M, or Brawl]. I'm also interested in Japanese culture/language and have plans to travel there in about a year; in the meantime, I'm enrolled in the intermediate Japanese language course at Berkeley. What else? Well, I have a long history with chess and running, and I can bust out a pretty decent game of Egyptian War. Musically speaking, I play a bunch of instruments (primarily the piano, oboe, and saxophone), and I like listening to jazz[hop] and nostalgic "turn of the century" tracks.
So if you like any of the same things I do – and I listed so many it's got to be hard not to – you should hit me up. We can roast vegetables or play Egyptian War sometime.
Congratulations on making it all the way to the end! Before you go, I'd be overjoyed if you took a few minutes out of your day to shoot me an email. It could be about anything: life, love, or (even more excitingly) a challenge to a BO7 set of Project M. I'm also currently on the hunt for job and/or research opportunities, so feel free to send me any offers. :)
Note: Regardless of the occasion, I'll always get back to you as soon as possible. (Provided you put in enough effort to make it past my spam filter, of course.)
