Photography & Travels

For fun, for a while I loved taking overly artsy shots on my travels. A dedicated page is coming shortly but for now, check out my Instagram account (although it turned into an athletic account).

Opensource Software

I have over 100 small projets built for my learning and to guide others to build their own web applications. Please examine what I've done and feel free to fork my repositories.

According to a website called githubreportcard.reflect.io: In a year I made 2,354 commits across 56 GitHub repos in 10 languages. 78.80% of my GitHub commits were on weekdays, while 21.20% were on weekends. This year I added 37,093,628 lines and deleted 6,001,412 lines on GitHub. I contribute to GitHub the most on Mondays, with 452 commits this year.

Hypetroop

Hypetroop Market is just starting up with the goal make payments for music collaborations effortless and fast in it’s first version (1.0.0) I want to do what Airbnb did from the “Housing” section of craigslist with the music section of Fiverr.

1. Post a what music service you can offer
2. Get someone to pay you for offer.
3. Get paid and open a communication line with the collaborator. Share whatever files you need and work remotely. Send the file to the collaborator anyhow you want, (no cloud music IDE, just simple communication.)

It is basic but pretty core to what several urban artists are looking for in other outlets (i.e., facebook & twitter) but with a focus on payments, culture and market. It’s super new so it’ll adapt to the market over time but I encourage you to follow this it and see any updates about the road to adoption.

I went through the process of raising 2.5k on kickstarter and pitching this to silicon valley angel investors. As educational and exciting as it was, I now shifted gears to a career in a larger coorperation and watching this project from the side.

Alternative Fax

Athletic Career

The thing that got Natu into football - wanting to train and wanting to get stronger is what enabled him to power though it when I had to make a post-surgery comeback at a crucial time. Part of who Natu always was - wanting to do his own thing and build up a business service for many others is what made him see the value of computer science. It was the interdependency of sports and academics that helped him get through it. Natu ended his career in fall 2015 on his own terms in his fourth year with a touchdown, sack, and a hell of an experience to boot with a slew of amazing people.

These days, more often than not, you can find Natu in the gym getting stronger than even when he was playing football. Follow him on instagram (@Natumyers) for occasional training tidbits.

Youtube

Natu has a YouTube channel, with over 7,000 subscribers, to promote musicians. He gained a sizable following in regards to the christian hip hop community and racked up millions of views for some artists. Lately, he uses his channel mostly for business videos and it has slowed down since Copyright laws started to catch up with the times and profiablility isn't realistic.

Music

Natu built his own vocal booth during a summer in 2013 and has since been learning his craft of making music. Starting with some singles, to his mixtape "Ice Deep", Natu has been inspired by artists such as Lecrae, Yung Semaj, Knine Hampton, Dre Murray and their label mates. Being filled with optimism about the potential of positivity and faith in hip hop that was once deemed impossible, becoming a hobbyist and diving into learning the craft of rapping became a sure thrill for Natu.

He went on to launch his first professional album, "Rise" and release it to iTunes in fall 2014. He released another single called "Hattie's Cove" during the summer of 2015.
