I graduated with a B.S. in physics from Harvey Mudd College in 1993. Recent
education includes coursework at the University of Southern California
towards a M.S. in Computer Science. My professional experience is in the
areas of high speed networking, network architecture, and network security.
I am currently employed as a software engineer implementing a generic API
for incorporating cryptography into e-mail systems.
Mutt is a text based e-mail program for Unix operating systems. This work
began as a set of patches to ELM, but I ended up writing a completely new
client from scratch.
I've been collecting information on the late rock band known as
the Cars. Here you can find information on each of the band members,
plus information on a mailing list I run for discussion of the band and its
I have been an active participant in the
Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF)
working to develop a standard protocol for sending multimedia mail messages
secured with PGP(tm). This protocol has
been accepted as a Proposed Standard for the Internet.
Warning: Unix user
The only time I use Windows95 is when playing games (Civilization II rulez!)
or doing MIDI sequencing (Cakewalk Pro Audio). When I want to get some
work done, I boot up Linux on my PC. One of the best things about using
Unix is all of the free software available. I've found that the best
way to find software like this is through referral, so I've compiled a small
list of unix tools which I frequently use.
