I work on designing, building, and maintaining large computing systems. For me, that's mostly meant so-called "high performance computing" systems used for scientific computing; but I've also worked on large distributed storage systems, databases, and other applications that require lots of computers. If you've got a picture in your head of huge rooms with long rows of server racks, you've got the right idea.

Aside from computers, I'm mostly a fairly average nerd. I curl at the Granite Curling Club in Seattle, play tabletop role-playing games with my friends, occasionally bake tasty desserts, and volunteer with Ragtag to try to make the world a slightly better place. I live with my amazing wife, Leigh Featherstone, and cheer on her roller derby team; and we do our best to continue to entertain our herd of cats.

If any of the above sounds interesting, or you just want to nerd out about something you think is cool, feel free to send me an email or DM me on twitter. I love meeting new people.
