Hi. Name's Adam, but they call me Zeal.
I attend the College of William and Mary, graduating spring 2020. I study computer science and linguistics.
I like language
I speak B1 Japanese, German, and Chinese on the CEFR scale. What that means is I’m conversational, but just barely so. I speak them like pie crust - the foundation is there, but it’s flaky.
As Professor Dan Parker’s research assistant I work with a ACT-R model of sentence processing - basically, I use computers to figure out what happens in your brain when you hear a sentence.
I do computery stuff
I do webdev, I lean front-end and I like making websites usable and neat-looking.
- Frameworks and whatnot: Ruby on Rails, Django, Vue.js, Node.js, Android, Wordpress, Git, Linux.
This site is built on Jekyll.
I am capable of other things
I do 2D animation and motion graphics in Adobe After Effects, Premiere, and Photoshop. Portfolio
I’m the 16th best Just Dance player in the United States (not kidding).
I can be contacted
I’m @theycallmezeal on Twitter and /u/theycallmezeal on Reddit.
I’m occasionally on IRC. Ping tcmzeal on freenode.
Here’s what I look like:
