Hi, I'm Rohan

I'm a full time student, developer, and hacker.

About Me

  • 1995


    I was born on December 23rd, 1995, in Bridgewater, NJ. I had the privledge of gaining a great education in my schooling, building up to higher level classes in later years.

  • 2005


    I recieved my first video game console, a Playstation Portable. After getting bored with playing video games, I decided to try my hand at making my own games, using Actionscript (Adobe Flash), which could be played via the console's web browser.

  • 2006-2015


    My love of programming has led me to learn more languages and technologies. I currently attend the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, pursing a Computer Engineering and Business Management double major.

  • Current:
    at UIUC!
