Bio

Hi, My name is Seth Kushniryk.

I'm currently a student at the university of British Columbia studying international economics. I use this website to host and document various projects, and information like my résumé and my public key.

I have many interests, one of which is computers and IT. In high school I took many computer related courses, including Cisco Networking and Advanced Placement Computer Science. In the summer of 2015 I was fortunate enough to get a job in IT where I learned a lot about the field and was given many opportunities to expand my skills. Programming is something I enjoy doing in my spare time. I like working with C and Java, though I'm much more knowledgeable about C. I often work on personal programming projects in my spare time, and therefore they can go unfinished for long periods of time. Currently in the works at the time I'm writing this are a CHIP8 emulator written in C, and my blog which is PHP and HTML. I enjoy using Linux, and most of my work is done using my favourite distro, Slackware. For all of my editing, note-taking, and my personal journal I use GNU Emacs—the best editor in existence.

One of my other interests is music, I enjoy both playing music and listening to it. I play drumset, piano, church organ, guitar, harmonica, saxophone, and french horn (I played french horn in a band, though I wasn't very good at it). When I have time I enjoy recording myself playing, because I'm also interested in pro-audio, though I don't often have time to do this. I like to listen to music whenever possible. I have my own streaming server with my entire library on it so I can listen to my favourites anytime, anywhere. My favourite artists are Bob Dylan, The Who, The Beatles, David Bowie, Coldplay, Félix Leclerc, and The National. I often like listeneing to complete albums; my favourites are The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars, Tommy, The Times They Are A-Changin', and Quadrophenia.
