A bit about me.

Hey, I'm Dilan, a full-stack software engineer and fourth-year undergraduate student at Northwestern University studying computer science. I have a huge passion for quality software, beautiful user interfaces, and automation. I've been coding for over 11 years, working on projects ranging anywhere from desktop and mobile applications to developer tools to websites and web APIs to video games and game mods, many of which you'll find here on my site.
