Who am I?

Hello! I am recently graduated with a Master's in applied mathematics. Before that I was in the Navy driving ship and managing maintenance crews for steam systems and electronics. Before that, I was shirking my education in computer science at the U.S. Naval Academy in favor of beer and video games.

What am I doing here?

Well, to be a little too frank for my own good, I'm playing catch up. Now that I'm older, I realize how interesting learning is, and dove into grad school headlong. I barely survived, and didn't learn enough because I was so far behind my peers (see shirking my undergraduate education above).

I want to pursue a career that uses math and programming in combination, because I find both subjects to be fascinating and fun. That's why I'm here. To continue self-educating until someone deems me employable. Wish me luck!

What about for fun?

I'm an avid rock climber, surfer and backpacker. I live with my wife in Kings Canyon National Park, where she is a manager at one of the primary lodges here. I use the crappy internet at the hotel to continue my research on StackExchange.

Current Skill Set

I enjoy programming primarily in Java and Python, though I do have academic exposure to other languages such as C, C++, JavaScript, PHP and Perl.

I am interested in any career that marries mathematics and computer programming. I would like to continue to grow in my knowledge in these two realms, as I find both topics fascinating and fun.
