Educational Background:

I'm an alumnus of the Computer Science Department at the University of Arizona. I graduated with my M.S. in Computer Science in 1996. While at the U of A I worked on the Imager for Mars Pathfinder project (IMP) in the Lunar and Planetary Laboratory. Here's a picture I took of myself with the IMP while it was still in the lab, before its one-way journey to Mars. Note: Pathfinder was the one which made it to the surface and completed its mission!

Before attending U of A, I received my B.S. in Computer Science and B.S. in Math from Southwest Missouri State University. 05:48:26 up 142 days, 6:07, 1 user, load average: 0.00, 0.01, 0.05
