Graduate Student in Computer Science at the University of Utah.
I am a mathematician (PhD from SUNY Albany) who is now looking for work in computer programming. I especially like the mix of linear algebra and computer software found in computer graphics, but I'm willing to do work in other things as well.
I'm also interested in both digital and analog robotics (I like "dual quaternions"; they have applications in both robotics and computer graphics), technical writing, and being a security guard (especially if I get to use the flame thrower).
I am also interested in part-time work! I'm currently working part-time for EV Source in Logan; working part-time for others will make it easier for me to continue work with EV Source.
Works for HP in the Bay Area. Former BYU-UUG officer. Enjoys hacking in Perl and Python. Maintains and develops the open source project Oggify
I am here to hopefully get a chance to socialize with some peers. I have been programming, and using Linux for my primary workstation's operating system since 1996, and I'm curious to learn more. I hope to have that opportunity here.
Currently working for Canonical publishing the Ubuntu Cloud Images on Amazon AWS, Windows Azure and Open Stack.
I am willing to do small contract jobs relating to PHP development or linux server administration, especially if CakePHP or Gentoo are involved. I am not currently in the market for any large contracts, but long term low-demand work is welcome. If you want to know my rates, please email me.
