Thomas Pedbereznak

About Me

Hi there! My name is Thomas Pedbereznak, or Tom for short, and I am currently a Candidate for a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science With Concentration in Cyber Operations at Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts. I went to Branford High School (BHS), located in Branford, Connecticut where I was part of the Baseball and Varsity Track and Field teams. Aside from sports I was also a member of the National Honor Society along with multiple clubs including: Physics Club, Math Club, Chess Club, Interactive Club, and Video Game Club.

After high school my life took a crazy turn when I participated in Northeastern's first-semester study abroad program where I traveled to Thessaloniki, Greece. Here I studied at the American College of Thessaloniki for the next three months, which was an amazing experience. Along with assimilating with the culture, I was also able to volunteer at a local soup kitchen in hopes of putting food on families plates. I was also lucky enough to be able to travel to other places such as Belgium, Rome, Florence, and Amsterdam. However, Greece will always be a second home to me, and I hope to travel back one day.

At Northeastern I currently mentoring incoming computer and information science freshmen and I am soon to be member of the Track and Field team. I will participate in the High Jump, Long Jump, Triple Jump, and Javelin events.

I spend my free time skatboarding, and programming. I became interested in skateboarding while living on the Northeastern campus. I have met a few other people that enjoy the same hobby and am thinking about starting up a club. I also enjoy programming in Java and Python, but I am currently learning HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. I also love to work on team projects in order to build video games and other APIs. As a side note I would like to mention that I am very interested in deep learning and would like to learn more about the subject.

If you would like to see a more technical breakdown of my skills check out my Résumé. If you would like to learn even more, contact me below.

At CHNCT I oversaw asset and database management and computer setups, managed and created data in Wendia. I also set up multiple computers for employees, optimized hardware swaps, and filled empty cubicles for new hires. I don't currently work at CHNCT, but I've worked there for two summers.

Cesium

Cesium is "an open-sourse JavaScript library for world-class 3D globes and maps". At Cesium I will increase my JavaScript skills along with learning how to use GitHub in a real world setting. I will also aid in designing the terrain and world generation of Cesium. The Cesium team is composed of about nine people. This means that we can collaborate closely with each other in a linear hierarchy.
