About Myself

Hi there 👋! I'm Nicholas, but you can call me Nick. I'm a passionate developer with a drive to realize great solutions. Currently, I am pursuing a degree in Computer Science and Mathematics, leading into my 4th year at the University of Toronto.

I have lots of interests and hobbies, some of the topics I love are: artificial intelligence, music, illustration, anime, and games. I enjoy playing and singing with my guitar and showing off my skills in StarCraft 2.

Open Source Projects

The cards may take a moment to load based off GitHub's API. When loaded, you can hover over the colours to see which language it represents.

ZeroTwo Bot

My first large project. I learned the most from this project: developing software, deploying/hosting an application on the cloud, maintaining and scaling, interacting with APIs, and security/authentication. This project has given me lots of opportunity to explore technology and also expose me to a lot of great projects and developers.

Ani-SS

Building an interface for WebGL shaders to behave on browsers. This project was inspired by bloc97's Anime4K project that were intelligently crafted shaders to enhance or recover visual quality of a video or image.

AWE (A WebAssembly Emulator)

A project to bring emulators to the world wide web. With the advent of web assembly, software and technology has never been so accessible. In this project, I aim to use the computer skills I have learned to bring game console emulators to your web browser!
