Who I Am

Hi, I’m Thanh Nguyen, also known as 阮天青 or テンセイ, an aspiring computer science student at Grand Valley State University in Grand Rapids, Michigan in the United States. I have a passion for the web and 3D printing. My past affiliations include Hope College and Meiji Gakuin University, where I received my Bachelor of Arts in Japanese Studies.

What I Do

I use JavaScript/NodeJS, Java, Ruby, Python, JSON, and SQLite to get things done. Markdown is my preferred markup language, and I am currently learning Go and Elm. I am on GitHub at @seitensei.

Where I Am Going

My long term aspirations are to become proficient in full stack web development and to develop a working knowledge of native mobile development in order to improve the accessibility of content and services in all form factors.

Hobbies I Have

My hobbies generally break down into three areas: electronics (primarily arduino/AVR), 3D printing, and photography. My printers are a Printrbot Play, and a FolgerTech 2020 Prusa i3. I’m looking to add a delta robot style 3D printer or a CoreXY style 3D printer in the future. I enjoy digital and film photography, with my favorite cameras being Olympus MFT, the Olympus OM series, and the “Blackbird, Fly” TLR toy camera. Photos are on flickr.

Things I Say

My preferred social networking service is Twitter.
