Who am I? Well, first off, I'm not just another schmuck with a computer. I have a wide variety of interests, I'm highly creative, and I just love to play with gadgets. In other words, I'm a highly-opinionated, artistic schmuck with a computer.

Professionally, I'm a Computer Engineer. Primarily involved in hardware design, I also dabble in software, firmware, and technical writing. I'm currently employed at a small startup in San Jose, California called Network Virtual Systems. We make network processors that implement IP security protocols for the internet. I could tell you more, but then I'd have to kill you.

Anyway, I've included my resume here as well, just to be thorough.

On a more personal note, I'm also a computer hobbyist. And because I'm highly intelligent, I own a Mac. More than one, in fact. (At this point, it's more of a religion, really.) I'm also into science fiction, comedy, movies, fine dining, music, writing, games (especially AD&D), and sports (fencing, basketball, football, softball, ultimate, and volleyball).

And, yes ladies, I'm single and available.

These are a few of my favorite things:


Computer-Related Thingies


Science Fiction Stuff (SF Bay Area)

Comedy Material


Gud Fud (Again, Bay Area)


This and that...
