Hey there. I'm Tim, and I love solving problems using code, math, and algorithms. I've freelanced, worked for a startup, and participated in a lot of programming contests, and placed in a few. I've also helped organize some algorithmic contests myself to show people the fun challenges you can tackle in computer science.
I also occasionally participate in online algorithmic problem solving sites.
I've been deeply in love with code since I was 13, when I stumbled upon a guide to building websites in a book I was reading. After a few years of messing around, I started contributing to Sage, and in particular, Sage Notebook, its web interface, and eventually became a core contributor to the notebook, and its release maintainer for a few releases. Sadly, I had to stop when I entered college, but in its stead I discovered the UP Programming Guild, and through it the excitement of programming contests. In my second year of college, I started freelancing, and continued until the middle of my third year, when I was recruited into Kalibrr, where I remain til now.
My relationship with math started a few years after I discovered coding, when I was 16 and I found out that math was more than arithmetic and algebra, and involved beautiful and elegant proofs. I've since been drawn to math and its applications as both a means and an end. I am especially enthralled by the continuous sort of math (e.g., analysis, probability) and computer science (e.g., algorithm design, graph theory, parsing).
