I'm Jahan [juh-hon], a multidisciplinary software engineer and designer based in D.C. I've been active in various fields, studying and working in computer science — namely, language theory and computational complexity — art, and bits of mathematics. In my free time, I explore problems to develop my study or will impact others with some gaming mixed in (read: LoL). I also love to make people laugh, sharing peculiarities, and exploring others' interest in science.
I spent years studying art and illustration, but found more interest in mathematics and computational problems. My parents are artists — my father paints with his right, and draws with his left — and has painted professionally in his lifetime. He took up classes in CS and was interested in both, too. I think his ambidexterity and talent enabled my 'both-sided' path and ability to do both. I love to bring both sides together and build projects to study, improve and enhance along the way. From hacking on Sanyo microcontrollers to implementing automata and interpreters, while ensuring leading and kerning perfection.
