About Me

Hey there, I'm Tyler Hedrick and I'm passionate about computer science, music, and mobile development. I am currently a senior at Carnegie Mellon University pursuing a degree in Computer Science with a minor in Music Technology. I have been an intern at Facebook for two summers, and currently teach my own iOS development course at CMU.

When I'm not making websites, or programming the next big iPhone app, you can probably find me at a coffee shop, or exploring a new place for lunch. I also love baking, karaoke, hiking, and volleyball. Make sure you check out my work, and contact me if you like what you see!

For a class project, we were required to create a webpage to make it to the top results of Google when you search "hitseeker". I am posting a link to my hitseeker page to hopefully move up the ranks in the search results.
