About Me & Contact Info

I'm a CS student at the University of Minnesota (Twin Cities, CSE, expected graduation 2023). I'm also pursuing a minor in Philosophy and a minor in the History of Science, Technology, and Medicine. I think it is important to understand the context of the field you work in.

I do some work with the MELT research group at the U. I am also sysadmin-emeritus and general-purpose old-timer at the ACM chapter there.

I'm involved with BSA Troop 187 as an adult Scouter. I am an Eagle Scout. Troop 187 is an open and affirming troop and has welcomed LGBTQ+ members and leaders since long before BSA National.

In my spare time I like (live) music, cycling, reading, canoeing, infrastructure, and camping.
