I'm a programmer with experience in embedded graphics, mobile OS development and Internet-of-Things. I was trained in theoretical physics and got a Ph.D. In physics in 1997, but then immediately got out--I'm happy I did it, because I learned a lot of things I wanted to learn, but in hindsight I don't think I was that well suited for the academic life.

I live in Massachusetts with my wife, Samantha, our daughter, and two cats.

I was active on Usenet through the 1990s and into the early 2000s, posting to physics and science-fiction groups and to the peculiar humor/chatter group alt.religion.kibology. After that I was fairly active on LiveJournal for a while; these days my public posts have been mostly on Google+, but I'm currently moving over from LJ to Dreamwidth for long-form posts that might not fit comfortably on G+. In my spare time I have, at various times in my life, dabbled in very amateur science-fiction writing, recreational mathematics, processing of space-probe images, acting in staged radio plays, geeking out about random subjects like roller coasters and video games, and trying to learn the guitar.
