B.A., Physics, Amherst College 1980; M.S., Computer Science, Stevens Institute of Technology 1988; J.D., New York Law School 1992. I am a Navy brat who was born in Japan, and has lived in multiple cities on both coasts of the US. I wrote my first computer program in 1971, when I was thirteen. Machines were a little different then, but programming them really hasn't changed all that much. My bachelor's thesis involved a TTL interface I designed and built to allow a TRS-80 computer to count pulses from a photomultiplier, then run an autocorrelation on them. This became the subject of a short paper in the American Journal of Physics, co-authored by my advisor, Dr. Mark Peterson. Today, my interests are in helping the next generation of programmers use the tools we have today to build their skills faster than I was able to build mine, and in procedural content generation for games and artistic projects.
