About Me & Contact Info

I'm a CS student at the University of Minnesota (Twin Cities, CSE). I'm also pursuing a minor in Philosophy and a minor in the History of Science, Technology, and Medicine.

I'm doing work with the MELT group there currently. I am sysadmin-emeritus of the ACM chapter there. I've taken a leave of absence from coursework during the pandemic.

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 (mostly SF,) canoeing, infrastructure, and camping.
