Hi! I'm a high school student from Chicago. Right now I spend most of my free time developing tools to give more kids from around the city an opportunity to learn to code. I'm super into good design and improving human interactions, so most of my projects are web-based.

Other things I enjoy: philosophy, electronic music, functional programming, biking.

What do you use to make music? That's one area where there's a surprisingly small amount of FOSS. I've found plenty of trackers (like SunVox), but those are often limiting and have a steep learning curve.

My friend uses GarageBand + Audacity, which seems like an interesting combo if you're on MacOS.
