About Me

I hold a Bachelor's of Science in Computer Science from Henderson State University in Arkadelphia, AR, US. I dual-minored in Mathematics and Physics.

Right now I am an officer in the United States Air Force, stationed at Ramstein AB, Germany.


  • books books books, especially history and military history
  • theoretical computer science (I did get a degree in it after all)
  • computer programming of all sorts (Perl of course, and C are my best languages, but lately I have been playing around with things like Lisp and Ocaml)
  • mathematics, especially towards the discrete end of things (number theory, set theory)
  • cryptography (see above)
  • physics, especially in the area of simulation with computer programs
  • Free Software and Linux in particular (Debian is my distro of choice)
  • privacy and freedom in the information age


Very few at the moment. I have a list of small things on my website that I try to keep up to date.
