All about me. Hmmmm, well here is something that my friend Laura once told me:
		you know, you could be considered a nerd. you don't look like one, but
		you have a computer and math major, you get excited about the new TeX,
		etc. why don't you get out more?
She's always awfully nice to me.

     So I have a BS, double major in math and computer science, from the University of Washington (1999). The UW's a wonderful school, particulary the Computer Science Department, which I feel very lucky to have been a part of. Currently, I'm working in Seattle as a programmer at an e-commerce business (the view from my window).

     I love a good book, there are few things better, a short list of my favorites is: The Lord of the Rings, Tad William's Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn trilogy, Adam's Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Dumas' The Count of Monte Cristo, Pirsig's Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenence, James Hilton's Random Harvest, and anything by Charles de Lint.
     And what would life be without music? again a few of my fav's are: Suzanne Vega, The Beastie Boys, Sky Cries Mary, The Creatures, David Bowie, 311, Squirrel Nut Zippers, Steeleye Span, Combustible Edison, Plastilina Mosh, and so much more.
     I'm a down-hill skier (when I can afford it), and I play racquetball and tennis, and ride my bicycle a lot (mostly to work). And I love juggling and flower sticks! I'm working on my 5-ball right now, I can't keep them up for long. I also juggle clubs and can do a good number of different patterns with them, and with 3 and 4 balls. I'm even semi-professional! -- to kill time while waiting for my bus at the Greyhound station, I sat in line and did 3-ball patterns. I made $3.53, I totally wasn't expecting it, it was pretty fun I thought.
     One more thing I enjoy a lot is sleeping. I think sleep is a real great idea and I'm working on fitting more of it into my schedule.

So what do I look like? My mom I'm told, but I don't see the resemblance. I'm 6 foot 3 with long brown hair. And now I even have a picture of myself, I'm the one in the middle, we were trying to smirk for the camera, I'm not sure if that explains all our expressions.
