Hello curious readers of the Square website. My name is Keaton and I have recently joined this website and hope to publish soon. I’ve always enjoyed providing reliable information to other people. As of now I’m not quite sure the topics I’ll focus on, but I’m sure I’ll find my place. I am part of the Saint Joe High Esports team, but unfortunately has been interrupted by the pandemic. I do enjoy tech a fair bit along with public speaking. As of now though I best get to work. I look forward to being a part of this website and I look forward to seeing you soon.
