Bringing the goat at AGI Hack Day
Hey there, internet. Nice to meet you.
The Official Bio
I'm a semi-regular participant on From Python Import Podcast; I've done some production work for it as well. I'm working on bullying the other guys into establishing a regular schedule (it hasn't worked out so well, but there's always hope).
I spent a couple of years helping to establish, organize, and run Clepy, the Cleveland area Python user group. These days, I'm lucky if I have time to show up (but you should totally check it out if you're in town and want to hang with smart, friendly people).
Once upon a time, I hosted a freeform music show called Jedi Mind Tricks on WRUW-FM; perhaps some day I'll get around to ripping tapes of my show to prove it. (Don't hold your breath; I'd prefer you didn't hurt yourself, and besides, you look silly when you try.)
I grew up in scenic Durango, Colorado; I couldn't have asked for better roots.
I graduated from Case Western Reserve University in May 1999 with a B.S. in computer engineering. Besides being on-air at WRUW, I spent some time as the station's webmaster. I also served one term as president of the CWRU Anime Society (which seems to have had its identity merged with Japan CASE).
Social Network Presence
You can find various semi-canonical permutations of my online existence here:
This is mostly here for the benefit of my family, who continually lose track of the links...
