Jacob's Face

Hey there! My name's Jacob. I live in Ypsilanti, MI, and I'm a technology consultant and computer science student. I've been programming for about 11 years and using Ruby on Rails for about 7. I'm currently unavailable for new work, but check back in mid-2020 — I should be graduated by then.

If you'd like to get in touch, you can email me (jacob [at] shreve.io) or tweet me (@_shreve). If you'd like, you can easily encrypt your message.

Things I'm working on

  • B.S.E. in Computer Science from UMich

    Beginning Fall 2016, I started my junior year at the University of Michigan's school of engineering. By the time I finish, I'll have taken courses in algorithms, cryptography, computer security, operating systems, networks, and more.

  • Open Source Software

    When I write software, I like to write it in a way that I can share it with the whole world. On my GitHub I've shared code for remote-controlling Roku TVs, a ready-to-deploy Stripe checkout server, a split encryption tool, and more.

This song goes out to anybody here that believes that maybe, just maybe, we were all born with the moral obligation to leave this world a better place than the world that we've found.
