A software engineer that does low-tech hardware hacking on the side, with emphasis on sound art/noise music. In software, I lean towards perl, postgresql, jquery, and emacs. My academic backround is in Mechanical Engineering (Stony Brook) and Materials Science (Stanford). I'm originally from the New York area (born in Brooklyn, but condemed to a life in Huntington Station, Long Island throughout my teenage years. Like Bill Griffith, I spent a lot of time up on Jane's Hill.
