I’m Jake Billings. I am a Software Engineer, E-Commerce Expert, Ethical Hacker, Linux Admin, and Entrepreneur. I have a degree in Middle Eastern Studies with an emphasis in Biblical Hebrew. I am currently working on a Masters degree in computational linguistics with an emphasis in Mesoamerican indigenous languages at Francisco Marroquin University in Guatemala City.
I have a passion for education, academia, foreign culture, exploration. I love to hike and be outdoors. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints commonly referred to as the “Mormons.”
I am also a libertarian. I believe that individual liberty is more important than the collective whole. Our rights come from our creator, not the government and therefore are unalienable in nature. In other words, a right is a right even if it is not recognized by the government.
This blog is just a way to get random thoughts and ideas out of my head and share them with the world.
