About me!

developer, crypto nerd, breaking everything

I love rabbits, cheesecake, and cute things! My life is prime numbers, triangles, half diamond lockpicks, crypto, eating chocolate. Some of my most favourite things to do is chase after telephone wires and ride the 7000-series trains in DC.

When I'm not making or breaking stuff I love to drink hot apple cider and cry a lot because of how cute rabbits and corgis are.
