About Me

My name is Alexander Ege and I'm a Computer Engineer who enjoys finding new ways to make my life easier and more enjoyable.
Whether that means writing a script to do mundane tasks for me, or creating an efficiency-based user interface to streamline my workflow,
I spend my time self-learning in an attempt to expand my horizon and challenge myself mentally.

Photography

I use a Panasonic DMC-G5 DSLR Camera.
Still learning how to use it properly, but here are some photos I took with it at the Dallas Zoo.

Projects

I am constantly looking for interesting projects to work on that will let me learn something new along the way.

I especially enjoy editing videos using Adobe After Effects, writing code in Visual Studio, and editing photos in photoshop.

To get the best understanding of how web-design works, I've tried to write as much of the HTML/CSS/JS code on this page myself.


What I use:

Visual Studios

Visual Studios is my go-to IDE. I use it to create GUIs, Web Applications, Websites, etc.

Afer Effects

I use After Effects to edit together my Unicycle clips and add special effects

AutoHotKeys

I use AutoHotKeys to create scripts/macros to make my life easier. Whether it's automating projects to open at startup, or executing a list of instructions, AHK is a great tool for increasing efficiency.

Trend Products

I took the product matrix used at Trend and made it into an interactive webpage giving you quick access to additional information for each product.
