Born in Roechester, NY
Joined the U.S. Navy where I really started to move around...

BS Computer Science, National University, Summa Cum Laude
MS Software Engineering, National University
5 Years Federal Civil Service working on DSP and OTH-B Radar
5 years SAIC, what a waste ...

One of the aspects of modern life has been a slow steady decline of interest in science and technology, with BOINC we can now see that the individual can have a direct and personal contact with science experiments and the process of how research is performed.
