Who am I?

Ian Terry. Chicago, IL.

Former design engineer; current computer science student and hobbyist software developer. Most of my free time is spent programming - whether that be developing a new game or app, learning a new technology by creating something, or just sharpening up on the fundamentals. I also spend a decent amount of time lifting weights, riding my bike, making music, and running. Be sure to check out my blog to see what I've been working on lately.

What is this site about?

This site is my personal portfolio and blog. I created the site from scratch using html, CSS, and Javascript with Python and Django.
