Hi! My name is Teland and I am from the Bay Area, California. This is my personal site where I will post personal projects and random stuff.
A little about me: I'm a student at Stanford University. I have interned at NVIDIA for the past two summers. Outside of work, I created a podcast that has been featured in the New York Times and NPR, hold a Guinness World Record, make music on Spotify and Apple Music (2 million+ streams), and maintain a video game that I made the #1 most viewed game on Twitch (40,000+ users).
I recently made a talking fish that can sing, talk, and argue with you (with my voice). I made it believe that it is a human trapped inside of a fish and is desperately trying to get out. It was actually featured by Arduino! You can find an article about it here. I built it using an Arduino Uno and a Billy Bass, and the backend uses the Whisper API for speech to text, GPT API, and the ElevenLabs API for my voice.
Making games is a hobby of mine - one of my games became the most popular game on Twitch, where streamers play games live. It actually received over 80,000 viewers! You can find the game here. At its peak, it received more than 40,000 users.
I host a podcast called the "Major Jobs Podcast". You can find it here. Some of my favorite guests have included Ernie Johnson, Portugal. the Man, the voice of Siri, Jeff Kaplan, and Ken Bone.
