Hello, my name is Jeffrey Carr
Cyber Analyst.
Computer Scientist.

I am currently a Scientist within the Naval Information Warfare Center Atlantic. I started this position August 2nd, 2021, and it is my first full time job out of college. I received a Bachelor of Scientist in Computer Science from the University of Massachusetts Amherst in May 2021. Want to know more about my professional career? Connect with me on LinkedIn!. All my programming projects can be found on my Github.

I've been interested in computers since middle school when I started playing video games and thought it was amazing what you could do with a computer. Freshman year of high school, I started a programming club as a place where students could collaborate and learn about programming. In college, I started a video game development club to help other students help each other learn the in's and out's of video game development. The club grew up to over 50 members.

In my free time, I like to play around with programming projects trying to learn new skills. I also enjoy playing sports with my friends. If I'm feeling especially active that day, I might enjoy going outside on a hike. A couple summers ago I spent a lot of time with my mom driving from Massachusetts to California and back. She even made a short blog about it!
