Hi, I'm Jerred Shepherd 😄

I’m a person who loves learning. I often lose hours to reading Wikipedia articles, particularly those about history.

I spend a lot of my time programming and learning more about computer science and software. I care a lot about efficiency and finding better ways to work.

I’m studying at Georgia Tech to pursue a Masters in Computer Science (OMSCS).

Aside from staring at screens, I really enjoy cooking, baking, gardening, running, and reading. Living in Seattle has turned me into a bit of a coffee snob, so I also consider that a bit of a hobby, too.

I’m very active on GitHub, so you can check that out if you’re curious about what I’ve been working on. My résumé has a more complete view of my background.

Here are a few of my favorite things:


  • Community (so excited for the movie!)
  • House
  • Ted Lasso


  • Valley
  • Lord Huron
  • MisterWives


  • Interstellar
  • Knives Out
  • The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo


  • Dune
  • Three-body Problem
  • A Memory Called Empire


  • Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
  • Wicked
  • Hamilton
