HF High School Graduation, 2016
Hi- I'm Nick.
I'm a current sophmore at Northeastern University studying computer science and math. I have a strong love for hockey and the Chicago Blackhawks, and am part of our club roller hockey team at school.
Some of my recent fun tech projects include:
- updating my desktop to a quintuple boot: Windows 10, macOS Sierra as a Hackintosh, Ubuntu GNOME 17.04, Fedora 26, and Arch Linux.
- reconfiguring my home server to run ESXi with pfSense in a virtual machine as my router and Ubuntu server running various applications
- configuring my homelab to do complicated functions that are accessible to almost everyone.
- scrounging up computer parts people are throwing out to use or resell
- jailbreaking/rooting phones for ssh/root access to increase customization
- providing local tech support for friends and family when I am home from school
I have good experience with the following:
- Languages:   Java, Racket(Scheme), Lisp, HTML, CSS
- Systems:   Windows, macOS, Linux, iOS, Android
- Software:   VMware ESXi/Workstation/Fusion, Eclipse, IntelliJ IDEA, Atom, Notepad++, Photoshop, Illustrator, Premier Pro, Microsoft Office
- Networking:   Ubiquiti Unifi devices, pfSense, various other routers/switces
