A New Englander through and through. Born and raised outside of New
Haven, went to school in Burlington, and I just moved to Boston for
work. Most of my free time is spent surfing the web, playing video
games, or otherwise nerdy activities. I'm still getting used to
being in a city so it'd be nice to have someone to explore
I like to come up with random projects for myself that end up being
much more involved than I originally planned, but keep doing it

What I’m doing with my life
I just started my first ~real~ job in software development, and
ready to start a promising career. I have plans to go back to

Currently reading: Cryptonomicon

I'm just starting to learn how to cook more than Easy Mac, but if
it's fruity or sweet and has meat involved that's a perfect meal in
The six things I could never do without
Internet access, comfy bed, running hot water, good friends, good
music, and good books.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How can I meet Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum, Neil deGrasse Tyson, or
the Dalai Lama?
On a typical Friday night I am
playing a drinking game with friends either on the couch or at the
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
