Education: I am a graduated gradual student from the Computer Science Department of Duke University where I received my Ph.D. in 1994. My dissertation project was evaluating performance problems in NUMA shared memory multiprocessors. I received my BS in 1988 from the University of Maryland, College Park, and my High School diploma in 1985 from Richard Montgomery High School, in Rockville, MD.

Work: Currently, I build and operate the MailerMailer email newsletter service using lots of (mostly) freely available technology.

Play: I tend to spend all of my free time playing with my daughters and wife.  I work out at a CrossFit gym a couple of times a week.  I enthusiastically recommend CrossFit to push yourself to your physical limits and have fun with great people at the same time.
