I've been on the internet since before the http and the web was invented, designed numerous web pages for other people, had several domain names since 1996, yet I didn't have a personal web page until now (2002). I did have a personal gopher page at one point, it was even indexed in various Veronica servers...

So, since you're here, I'll assume you'd like to know more about me... I lead a very exciting life here in Troy, NY. By day, I rule the universe with an iron fist. By night, I play on the computer and try not to break the Internet too much.

"How does a nobody like yourself get to rule the world," you might ask. The answer is simple -- with great determination, super human abilities, and the support of the British Empire, one can do anything.

In case the government ever investigates me, I do hold "real" jobs as well. Sometimes, I'm an employee at the Computer Science department of the Rensselear Polytechnic Institute (Renssitute, or the 'tute, as some would call it) doing system administration and other odd tasks. Other times, I am a student at the same place trying to earn a masters degree (in computer science, of course).

In my free time (not that I have any), I like to hack on FreeBSD once in a while. Of course, there are computer games (like I have time), watching TV (Star Trek!) and other mindless activities. If I really have lots of time, I enjoy doing theater as well (mostly lighting, set ). Yeah, I hang out with friends too.

Perhaps you would like to "come across my resume on the internet" and send me "new and exciting employment opportunities", or perhaps you work for one of those internet job search companies and want to tell me about "unique money making opportunities" (read: scam). Well, you've come to the wrong place. I currently hold a rather secure job (as the ruler of the universe, I might add) and have no need to go to Nigeria to claim millions of dollars. Or, maybe you're one of those people who noticed that my web site is not listed in all the search engines and would like to sell me information on how to be listed among the top 10 results on all the search engines. If so, you really need to email me at abuse@localhost and tell me what I need to do!

You can also find me on facebook, if you're into that social networking over the web thing.
