About Me

Me, Tomiwa Ademidun. Now you can put a face to the name.
My face.

My name is Tomiwa Ademidun and I like to make useful things.

I’m the founder of Atila.ca. We help students easily find and apply to scholarships.

I am a software engineer at Proteinqure, a biotech startup that does computational drug discovery. We use computers to engineer protein based drugs.

I studied software engineering and business at the Ivey Business School in Canada.

I noticed that all my paragraphs begin with I.

I enjoy studying people and human nature. This might seem like a weird thing to put in an about me page. But as I get older I realize that is a big part of understanding who I am.

Also, some links on this site are part of the Amazon Affiliate program.

Political and religious beliefs: Nice try, but I’m not sharing that here (yet!). I try to keep my identity small.

I finally realized today why politics and religion yield such uniquely useless discussions.

I think what religion and politics have in common is that they become part of people’s identity, and people can never have a fruitful argument about something that’s part of their identity. By definition they’re partisan.

Keep Your Identity Small, Paul Graham

But if you like humans and want to increase total human happiness then we are all on the same team anyway.

Views held by many humanists include:

Humans deserve respect. Every human should be treated with respect and allowed to have dignity. If all people act with respect for others, then people will live in peace and trust.

People should all be able to decide how they want to live their lives. They should use reasoning to make decisions and solve problems.

Humanists decide what choices are good by whether those choices will help make human life better and the world around them.

I’m a big soccer and NBA fan and my favorite team is Arsenal F.C and Tottenham Spurs. Yes, I know that they are rivals. I grew up an Arsenal fan and remain one out of loyalty. I am a Spurs fan because they play attacking football that is fun to watch.

I don’t know what else one is supposed to write for these things, but you can also tweet me, @tomiwa1a send me an email at ta@tomiwa.ca.
