Software Development Engineer at Amazon, commercial actor, and hobby photographer.

Non-exhaustive list of my favorite languages, in no particular order:

  • Native: C, C++, x86 ASM
  • Managed: C#, Java, .NET CIL/MSIL
  • Interpreted: Ruby

Experience in compiler development, OS kernel memory management, web applications, web crawlers, data mining, 3D raytracing, and data compression algorithm design.

Oh yes, and an obsessive-compulsive reader of Jeff Atwood's blog. I have fifteen different articles open as I type this.

"I want my ER doctor to understand anatomy, even if all she has to do is put the computerized defibrillator nodes on my chest and push the big red button, and I want programmers to know programming down to the CPU level, even if Ruby on Rails does read your mind and build a complete Web 2.0 social collaborative networking site for you with three clicks of the mouse." -- Joel Spolsky

Firefox and Chrome can be. If Chrome is my default browser, and the installer tries to open a webpage via an elevated thread, I get an elevated browser process.
