About

My name is Quint Guvernator. I studied at Universiteit Leiden from August to December 2015 with a program similar to the EU's erasmus.

Revspace changed my life. In a very short period of time, I learned a ton about hardware—a field I had never really touched before.

Before I left the Netherlands, I promised I would be back "within a decade". Hopefully it won't be that long. The timer is here.

At home, I study Computer Science and Linguistics at the College of William & Mary in Virginia, due to receive my B.S. in both fields in 2017. I work in Software Engineering research at W&M. I've worked at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs researching machine learning in technical design and am currently developing a study with the William & Mary Makerspace to advance adaptive and assistive technology using augmented reality audio.

I work in Williamsburg, VA as freelance web developer, most recently developing teaching software for local professors. I also design sound and music for short films and games, and edit the William & Mary student newspaper.

Outside of my studies, I like to hike, travel, build things, and make music.
