I'm a programmer, engineer and recent graduate from the computer and systems engineering program at Rensselaer Polytechnic School of Engineering. I currently work for the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics where I develop systems to fabricate experimental X-ray optics.
I enjoy sailing, running, cycling, a bit of video games (Minecraft and Team Fortress 2) and of course all the tom-foolery that comes about when living with friends and fellow engineers. I've always had a fascination for aviation, aeronautics, economics and (predictably) science fiction. I'm also a published poet.
