I’m an engineer, graduated with a B.E. in Electrical Engineering from the Cooper Union, and working in that field in the Greater NYC area.

My interests are varied and include computers & computer programming, science fiction & real-life space exploration, politics, and religion; see my active accounts on Stack Overflow.

Read my (very sporadically-updated) blog, or follow me on Google+.
