I started tinkering with computers at the age of 6. These days, I'm a senior software engineer at Google, currently working on Java application server infrastructure.
In my spare time, I play guitar and read voraciously, including science fiction and books on computing. I'm also a volunteer minister for the deaf, teaching Bible studies in American Sign Language.
Standard disclaimer: my opinions are my own, and not necessarily those of my employer.
I am #SOreadytohelp! I love answering programming questions -- both on Stack Overflow and elsewhere. (If you're inside Google's network, look me up. I'm especially happy to answer questions about Java, Guice, and application server frameworks.)
