Gabriel LVL

Gabriel LVL (pronounced Gabriel level) is my awesome online diary in the form of a blog (here). I share all the interesting things that I find and rant about some of the absurdities that the world has to offer.

Art

I like most forms of art, especially drawings. Some of my friends are great artists and have inspired me to also try drawing a little. From time-to-time I share some of the pieces that I create (usually 2 hour sketches of faces). I would like to create a visual novel one day when I have "levelled-up" my drawing skills.

Academic

I am a post graduate student in Computer and Electronic engineering at the North-West University (NWU Pukke) in South Africa. I am currently doing research that revolves around a field called "Quantitative Trading". Basically I develop intelligent algorithms and technologies to trade stocks, currencies and financial derivatives. It is a very competitive field, but lots of fun and sometimes very lucrative. I have my own algorithmic trading platform which I have developed during my time at university.
