Hello! I am a senior programmer/analyst with ADNET Systems, Inc., working on-site at NASA / Goddard Space Flight Center, and a member of the HEASARC programming team. My areas of expertise here at work include Perl/C/C++/Fortran programming, Web development (CGI and Mason), database administration and interfacing, and client/server programming.
Originally from Pittsburgh, PA, born in the city and raised in the countryside and later the suburbs, I attended Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. I graduated from CMU with a B.Sc. with University Honors (1992) and a M.Sc. (1994) in physics. In January 1995, I moved to Greenbelt, MD when I got my current job working at NASA.
In my spare time, I enjoy playing volleyball, disc golf, and softball, shooting pool (eight-ball); going to the movies; listening to music (especially attending live concerts); reading; and spending time with my friends. I'm also a very big fan of Star Wars.
