In 2012 I finished up my PhD in physics from Stony Brook University on Long Island, NY, specializing in particle physics. I did my research on the ATLAS Experiment of the Large Hadron Collider and lived in France for 4.5 years.
Now I'm doing programming for a firm in Moab, UT. I got bored and fed up with the LHC. Go figure.
I grew up in Grand Junction, CO and attended Palisade High before doing undergrad at CU-Boulder.
My parents and brothers still live in Grand Junction, so I'm frequently back there. After all, have you been to the Slickrock Cinemas in Moab?
