About Me

Headshot sister friends usher

Hello! I'm Logan Nitzsche, a Computer Science student at SIUE. With a strong foundation in programming, during my studies, I have become proficient in C++, C, Python, Java, JavaScript, HTML, CSS, PHP, SQL, and R I've honed with various software tools such as Git/Github, Visual Studio, R Studio, MySQL, Microsoft 365, Google Workspace, and IWorks Suite.

Beyond academia, you'll frequently discover me engrossed in a diverse array of interests and hobbies. My love for music runs deep, as I possess skill in both piano and guitar. Moreover, whether it's hitting the tennis court or exploring picturesque disc golf courses, I relish in outdoor activities. I also find comfort in maintaining an active lifestyle through physique training, and I derive immense satisfaction from engaging in the creative art of writing.

Driven by curiosity and a thirst for knowledge, I am eager to apply my diverse skill set to projects within the STEM community.
