shot of me at niagara falls

hey, i'm terry, and i love tech! i first became interested in coding for game development, and quickly expanded from scratch to python, go, javascript, and rust. something i pride myself on is my ability to write performant, typed, and well-formatted python code.



September 2017 – Present | Research and Development

I have experience in researching advanced technological concepts and formulating plans to use this technology in the real world. as well as this, i work as a general IT agent and help to optimize and repair the office computers. I also worked on the company's website .


August 2019 – May 2020 | Creator

  • offered a total of 8 services, including Ransomware/Corruption Protection. My services involved the cleaning and optimization of Windows computers.
  • only ever received positive remarks from customers.


May 2015 – Dec 2016 | Creatives Team Volunteer

  • Worked on events and the online church experience.
  • Collected and distributed feedback and input to improve the experience for new attendees.



October 2022 | 1st place

The first hackathon I ever participated in, my church's #hack2022 project involved creating the designs for an app that would guide people through starting their own churches. This was the first time using Figma in an actual project, which was definitely an interesting experience for me, but I picked it up pretty quickly. we ended up winning first place!



Since 2022 | Rust

One of my first Rust projects, pinned is a simple API that allows you to get a Github user's pinned repositories. It was created based on the fact that I was dissatisfied with the speed of other pinned repository APIs. pinned can scrape a user's pinned repos in >1 second, while others take multiple.


Since 2021 | Python

I absolutely hated the Repl.it database wrapper for python. It felt slow, and wouldn't work a lot of the time. So, I decided to make my own. It caches and mutates all keys in the database and supports nested keys. It's strongly typed and is far faster than replit-py. It has approximately 10k total downloads on PyPI.


Since 2022 | Rust & Python

Made in Rust, reqwest.py is my attempt to create much faster Python requests. It still struggles to beat urllib3, but it still uses less resources and beats out most other HTTP request libraries. It doesn't have a lot of features at the moment, but I've been working on it as a side project to help me learn rust.
