DEVELOPER // WRITER // LINGUIST // PHOTOGRAPHER



WELCOME

Hello, world! My name is Scott Enriquez, and I'm a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin with bachelor's degrees in computer science and Asian studies. I have far too many projects and hobbies for my own good, so I started this website as a way of exploring, sharing, and organizing them. Feel free to read about some of my personal experiences, see what I'm currently working on, or even contact me with questions or project inquiries.

ABOUT ME

After graduating from high school in 2008, I began my college career studying English, but I quickly changed my major to computer science. It was truly an honor to study alongside and under the tutelage of some of the most brilliant minds in the field. Words cannot express how grateful I am for the opportunity to have been part of such a prestigious and challenging program.

In 2009, I began taking Japanese language classes, which proved to change the course of my college career. I quickly grew to love the language despite its intense difficulty. In 2011, I added Asian studies as a second degree to further both my knowledge of the Japanese language and the international relations of Asia as well. These additional classes provided a 'human' side to my college experience and a pleasant reprieve from a Unix terminal.

After five enriching years, I graduated from the university; a truly bittersweet experience. As of January 2014, I work for the exploration and production company ConocoPhillips as an information technology analyst and developer.

I still feel like this is only the start of my life's journey. My life has taken me to some amazing places already and led me to some extraordinary people. I simply cannot wait to see where the next years take me. I still have dreams of teaching English in Japan and attending graduate school, but for now, the future is bright and unexplored.
