Hello! Welcome to my website.
On this page you can find links to my github, twitter, linkedin, email, and blog.
This site is also available on TOR! finlaymhikgnsfxbirykvvcwjioksni27ustuvk2eqens4z3ktmnibid.onion
I'm a student in the UK studying a degree in Computer Science and Electronic Engineering at the University of Liverpool.
In my free time I like running, hiking, climbing, programming (see github), breaking various electronics, and playing around with linux.
Programming I've done
The more notable projects on my github include a neural network in C++, a network visualiser I wrote in C, an XOR encryptor that I wrote while learning C++, and a very simple file carver, which I have yet to finish.
My A Level Computer Science project was a neural network that can recognise faces in images, written in C++, source code and a writeup are available on request.
There's also a Formula 1 race leaderboard lookup tool, but I wrote it a while ago so I'm not certain if it still works as it did in the 2019 season.
You can see more of my code on my github.
I can program in C/C++, Python, Visual Basic, Haskell, have experience with Assembly and can vaguely use html
I run a TOR relay node which can be viewed here
I'm pretty experienced with linux, especially arch based systems, although I am also familiar with other distributions
I have A levels in Maths, Physics and Computer Science
I have Bronze, Silver and Gold Duke Of Edinburgh awards
I can run a half marathon in just under 1.5 Hours, my next goal is a 50km ultramarathon, because I thought it would be funny to run an ultra before a regular marathon
In the summers of 2018 and 2019 I attended the CyberFirst Summer camps run by the NCSC and Smallpeice Trust. In this course I learned about OSINT, Network Security, Digital Forensics, Pentesting and Cryptography
In 2017, I spent some time working at YouView in their test automation team, where I wrote a frontend for their jenkins test system (note: this was a while ago, when my programming skills weren't anywhere near where they are now)
