Research Associate, Computer
I'm a research associate in the Flux research group at the University of Utah Computer Science department. My current focus is the Oskit , but I've done work in Fluke, FreeBSD, Mach4/Lites, Mach3/UX on the x86 and Mach3/OSF on the HP parisc.
I graduated from the University of Utah in 1995 with a B.S. in Computer Science and a minor in Math. Since then I've managed to both avoid ``the real world'' and grad school. I've worked in the Computer Systems Laboratory (back when it was the Center for Software Science!) since 1994: from summer 1994-spring 1995 as an undergraduate RA and afterwards as ``staff.'' During the 1993-94 school year I TA'ed CS110 ``Intro to Unix'' and worked at the Union movie theatre on campus (an amazingly fun job actually, I'd recommend it if the theatre hadn't closed a couple years ago).
I enjoy rock climbing, mountain biking, hiking, backpacking, running, skiing and snowshoeing. Here's an obligatory semi-random list of other things that I like.
I try to bike to work as much as I can. It's good exercise and is a lot more fun than getting stuck at traffic lights.
I'm also a member of the Wasatch Mountain Club. The mountain ranges around Salt Lake are probably the main reason that I'm still clinging to some semblance of sanity. If you're in the same boat, check out Save Our Canyons and see what you can do to help.
I've got about 12 cacti and succulents now and keep managing to find more room on my windowsill. Maybe someday I'll live in a state where you can actually grow these things outside. =)
