I am a husband and father of three. I work for the world headquarters of the Christian Science church as a digital product manager, meaning that I manage software and ebook development as well as digital publishing in general. I am a practicing Christians Scientist; I am happy to answer any questions about it and talk about it, but I have no desire to force my beliefs on anyone. In fact, I would be just as interested to learn about yours!
My favorite hobbies are all things technical, the ancient game of go (baduk, weiqi), reading, thought-provoking movies, and getting to know people. I particularly enjoy stories (books and movies) that make me think. I really enjoy science fiction that examines the world critically and challenges me. Two of my favorite movies like this are The Matrix and Gattica.
I love languages. I studied French for four years in high school and majored in Russian in college. I am no longer fluent in either due to lack of use, but I would enjoy the challenge of speaking either. I studied German for two semester in college as well but never became fluent.
In general, I love sports but they are not the center of my life. I played soccer and baseball in high school and still love to follow professional soccer and baseball. My favorite teams are the New England Revolution and Liverpool FC. Being from the Boston area, I am a big Red Sox fan as well.
I generally do most of my travelling for work. I have always stayed in hotels but love the idea of airbnb. I am looking forward to meeting new people during the conferences I go to instead of staying in a lonely hotel room.
