Info about Me

I'm a Chemical Engineering graduate from Purdue University, but my primary skillset is programming. And on top of that, I like designing things, ranging everywhere from expert systems to web sites to simple sketches. I guess you could call me a Renaissance Man.

But the best attribute is my sense of humor. From the image on my home page, you might think I'm a cunning and devious criminal. Except for one thing--felons normally have little to gain by advertising their ill-gotten deeds to the world.

How many people can laugh about being a hacker? I've found that most hackers are incapable of doing this. Perhaps it's because film and TV have given us rather bad PR. X-Files, Jurassic Park, The Net, The Score, you name it--such negative attention seems impossible to fight. So if you can't beat'em, join'em!

No Viruses!

I will be frank--I am sitting on a vast knowledge-base of computer hardware and software. But by no means will I do anything unethical with this knowledge. What's rewarding to someone with skills like these is success. What floats my boat is the satisfaction of taking on a tough challenge and seeing the rewards. I've decided that I don't like overly destructive projects. No, I'm a builder at heart. Think about it--no one who writes viruses is a friend of mine. I've got just as much to lose as the next guy.

What about Family?

Here's my mom, Paula, and my sister, Jennifer. Silliness runs in the family. My "Resident Eccentric" title doesn't raise too many eyebrows at home!
