Software systems architect, developer, and project manager, effectively evaluating solutions spanning entire software stacks from low-level CPU architecture to high-level application frameworks. Focus on providing elegant solutions for complex needs. Open source projects include the Portland State Aerospace Society, with arguably the most sophisticated avionics of any amateur rocketry group in the world; and XCB, a new low-level binding to the X Window System protocol, currently replacing Xlib on every Linux, Solaris, BSD, and MacOS X desktop.
My interests span computer science fields including cryptography, combinatorial search, compilers, and computational complexity; systems-level programming, such as file format and network protocol implementations, Linux kernel development, and boot-loader hacking; computer architecture and its impact on software design; and functional programming, preferably in Haskell.
