February Thesis Infographics!

Hello all!

Lately, I’ve been having issues correctly conveying some facets of the project to the general public that may not be as well versed in some of the technical concepts of the project. In an effort to make it a little easier to explain and the main concept of the project more accessible to all, I tried to find more elegant ways to express the information. Thus, the infographic was born!

Summer Updates

Hey everybody!

So, over the last couple of evenings I’ve spent a good deal of time updating the site! I”ve added new content, a couple new pages, and most importantly of all, began posting content from Spring semester! There’s a lot going on here so let me break down all of the updates for you!


Third Year MPS Camera Shootout!

So this is the first big one! If you head over to my page under projects, you’ll see the page for the MPS Shootout! This is a whopper and all of the content from the shoots, uncluding b-roll, final analysis and our final video screened for all of RIT’s film school is posted. There’s a lot of information here, and if you’ve followed along at all, it should be pretty exciting. I found it easier to turn it into a whole page, rather than a post so it can house more information as well as be easier to find later as more posts pile up!

Senior Thesis Project Update #1

The page is finally live! I have some updates to publish tomorrow so stay tuned for those! If you follow the header, it will take you to the landing page for my senior thesis project – this sucker is being researched over the summer and then the completion of research and the beginning stages of engineering will start in the fall! I’m still working on populating the page with information about the initial ideals and concepts of the project but those will be up soon as well!




As a lot of you know, I’ve recently moved over to doing all of my code versioning and revision tracking via GitHub and I think it’s pretty cool! I’ve started a couple of pages within this site to either pull from Gists that I’m working on or completed that I want to show you or from actual Git hub repos. Basic Gists can be found here and the rest of my stuff can be found on my actual GitHub page for now!



Thanks for catching up, be sure to check back to the pages as I’m adding more posts!

2014 Update!

Hey all!

It’s been a busy couple of months (okay, lot of months!) since I’ve posted recently, but I’m happy to say I’ll be back a bit more often now. I’ve been doing a large amount of back end server maintenance, as well as being loaded with coursework from the now past Fall Semester. I am still attending RIT in Rochester New York and recently completed one of my best academic semester to date. 

As a result of this, I have tons of new content to post! A lot of this is Matlab related, some of it is project related and a whole lot of it is systems administration and BackTrack related! Look for updates in the next couple days! Also, feel free to poke around the site, the infrastructure has undergone an incredible overhaul so there’s new content everywhere!

Side Project – Matlab and Linux



After 3 weeks and almost 40 hours of fighting, struggling, and programming non-stop, I finally beat MathWorks and got a working, 64 bit, native install of Matlab onto my new programming machine, running nothing but linux. Boy, was that hard. Much harder than using a graphical installer like on Mac or PC, but very rewarding nonetheless. Time to make the final steps on this auto photo editing software I’m writing as a summer project.
