I'm a statistical outlier, a free thinker, an independent variable.

I was born in Boulder, Colorado and have lived within 35 miles of the Flatirons my whole life.

I started using computers in the mid-1980s. I've been on the Internet since 1993. I have received a bachelor's and master's degree in computer science in 2003, with a minor in philosophy. I've made a living as a software engineer since 2004.

I am a polyatheist: I believe in the nonexistence of many gods. I love myth, legend, and lore. I appreciate the many ways human cultures have evolved practice and ritual and I enjoy creating new ones.

My brain gets stimulated by geography and cartography, language and orthography, visualization and photography, science and technology. My body gets stimulated by music and dance, hiking and travel, sunlight and hot springs, wholesome food and good brews.

I'm known for wearing weird hats, knowing obscure facts, analyzing deep problems, and expressing myself fearlessly.

I use Dreamwidth (and LiveJournal) because I have a long attention span and appreciate thoughtful writing. My posts tend to be verbose and infrequent, though I try to share something at least once a month. I write about myself and about the world in roughly equal measure; all posts are public. You're welcome to share your thoughts in the comments section, even if they're wildly different than mine. If I engage you in discussion, the focus will be on your ideas, not your character.

I like meeting new people. If you're in Colorado or our paths are otherwise likely to cross, I'd be happy to connect in person. On the Internet, you can find me on LiveJournal, Twitter, Google+, Flickr, LinkedIn, OkCupid, GitHub, or my website. I've never been a Facebook user: I disagree with the company's approach to product development and I dislike the culture that's evolved on the site.
