I was born in Great Barrington, Massachusetts. Since then I have lived in New York, New Mexico and California.

When I'm not messing around with code, I like to play trombone, write, read, geek out on games (video and board) and cook.

I also like to sneak in some volunteer work from time to time. Recently I spent time in Bogalusa, Louisiana gutting out flooded houses. I worked for an organization called All Hands Volunteers. They were a great group of people.
