Random Biographical Information

I currently live in Bloomington, Indiana. I am a research assistant at the Open Systems Lab at Indiana University, where I received my M.S. in computer science in December 2003.

I hope to eventually attend seminary with the aim of acquiring a Ph.D., and, eventually, probably teaching (if I don't get side-tracked into missions or relief work). My primary interests are New Testament studies, Greek, and church history. I am also interested though in the current state of the church, especially how the church relates to politics, and the lack of attention paid to service. Given my background, I also foresee plenty of opportunities to apply my technical experience.

I also hope to win on Jeopardy someday...

I was born in Dallas, Texas in 1979, though I have spent almost my entire life in Illinois, and, more recently, Indiana (and most of that time in the Chicago area). I consider myself to be from the Chicago area and Indiana. I lived in Evergreen Park, IL (original home of the Unabomber...) from 1981-1990; Chesterton, IN from 1990-1997; Valparaiso, IN from 1997-2001; and Bloomington, IN from 2001-2005. I have also spent some time in Latvia, where my parents currently live.

The most exotic place I have been to (which is admittedly not very exotic) is Jordan. I have also been to Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania, Holland (for about two hours), Germany, Austria, Canada, about three fifths of the United States, and even Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia back when they existed.

I have a B.A. in mathematics and computer science (May 2001) from Valparaiso University, and an M.S. in computer science from Indiana University.

I have been determined by my friends to be "one of a kind." Whether that is positive or negative I will leave for the reader to decide...

Some lame lists for your reading pleasure:

Favorite Books and Other Literary Works (in no particular order)

Note that I prefer nonfiction, short stories, and epic poetry to novels (someday, novels will not be considered the epitome of literary art, and I will sneer knowingly...)
