Hi there 👋 I’m Nate Taras

I’m an engineer living in Cleveland, Ohio.

From a young age, I have been incredibly passionate about technology and how it can help others. I started my computer science journey at the age of 12, self-taught using online resources. I continued to learn and grow my skills, and even started a couple of businesses through high school.

In lieu of college, I continued to pursue my passion for technology by working on projects and learning new skills. I have worked on many projects in many different disciplines – but eventually landed on web development as my primary focus. At the age of 21, I started my first official full-time engineering job as a Full-Stack Developer, where I currently work.

Outside of work, I try to find time for not-for-profit endeavors, primarily tackling internet censorship. By developing freely accessible networks and software, people worldwide – including those in China, Iran, Syria, and Saudi Arabia – are able to circumvent the repressive governments that seek to silence them by restricting their fundamental right to access the open internet.

I am known to play a game of chess or two from time to time, and I am a huge fan of the Cleveland Browns. I “play” the guitar, and I also enjoy spending time with my family and friends. My hobbies are always changing and evolving, but it’s safe to say that many of them tend to involve voiding warranties.
