Simple privacy for everyone

Five years behind UW Computer Engineering bars has made me gruff, tough, and hardy. The experience has instilled in me a love for the back-end development and big data, and the ability to cram any subject in a single night. Outside the cave, I love to eat great food, and hope to someday own seventeen cats and fifteen dogs.

Velo Bear


Support Bear at Tunnelbear. All year round I participate in cycling events, either riding on a wooden velodrome, mountain biking & road riding outside or kicking it at the local indoor bike park.
