My self-summary
I'm a nerd and I love being a nerd.

Basically my life consists of solving problems and building things (right now it's ATC systems). As I get better at it I intend to solve bigger problems and build even cooler things!
What I’m doing with my life
I started in R&D and new business development, building and promoting a prototype of tomorrow's air traffic control system (we hope!). Now I'm working as a subject-matter expert on a real-live system.

Apart from that my I'm trying to make it so that anybody who wants to can get an education in my field, whether it's just basic PC knowledge or something like programming or electrical/computer engineering.

When I'm not at work I enjoy drinking and bar trivia with friends and exploring the DC area.
I’m really good at
Bizarre trivia
Science/Technical anything
Cooking, when I put some effort into it
