About Me:

Born in San Francisco, raised in Palo Alto, I was blessed to be given the opportunity to witness the Bay Area turn from a pleasant place to live into a contemporary techno dystopia. Also, now everyone is a web programmer and all I want to do is systems programming.

My interests are primarily focused in writing programs that run fast and do interesting things. If doing the interesting things makes the program slow, then it's a problem I'm interested in. Some of the projects I have worked on in the past include interpreters, compilers, game engines, raytracers and operating system kernels.

I consider myself a researcher because I have a damned small amount of mental memory. I forget important things all of the time but fortunately I've augmented my mind with constant access to the internet and Wikipedia.

In addition to being a red-blooded American, due to my Mother being born in London I have a citizenship with the United Kingdom, something which will become much less useful when Brexit happens.

I am currently employed by the RASP firm Prevoty where I work on SQL parsing and analysis software. Therefore I am not seeking employment at the moment.

If there is an offer you simply have to tell me about, send me an email and I'll get back to you.
