Bio

Hello! My name is Kyle Martin, and I am currently a Computer Engineering student at NYU, class of ‘20.

My interest in computers ignited back 2010 I when discovered an App called BASIC. Immediately I fell in love; right there on my iPod I was able to make my own tiny creations. I followed this path recurring summers, attending ID Tech, the Digital Media Academy, and National Computer Camps learning everything I could: C++, Python, OpenGL, Java, HTML/JavaScript/CSS, and Multi-Arch Assembly. You can find more about my education and relevant coursework here.

Since then, I have gone on to teach at National Computer Camps where I led the instruction of all subjects, at my high school for math and science, and at NYU as both a TRIO (a Federal Program) tutor for computer science and engineering classes, as well as a Teaching Assistant for NYU’s Intro To Computer Science class (the latter two being me current employment). I am now part of the OSIRIS Club, for which I maintain the website, conduct security research at, compete in CTF’s with, and help organize CSAW.

All of the code I write is stored on GitHub. My more personal work, such as my school work and my late night scribblings, can be found on My GitHub Page, whereas I publish my more formal works under then pen-name of SaplingStudios.
