Story
Tagline
Computer Scientist. Vegetarian. Homebrewer. Musician.
Introduction
I'm a Googler and a computer scientist whose dissertation was on coordinating autonomous vehicles at intersections. I've been a vegetarian since 2004 for basically all the reasons except flavor and religion. I play the guitar and am a music lover with a very eclectic collection. I also like to run, make my own beer, use American Sign Language, and play with my kids.
Bragging rights
Have 2 kids and survived 7.5 years of graduate school. You can trust me, I'm a doctor.

Brilliant and important! 

"What we have, uniquely in America, is a political class, and an entire political party, devoted to the idea that any money spent on public goods is money misplaced, not because the state goods might not be good but because they would distract us from the larger principle that no ultimate good can be found in the state. Ride a fast train to Washington today and you’ll start thinking about national health insurance tomorrow."

Backyard Hop Crop Report, May 2015
Mt. Hoods last year I had a bumper crop of hops last year, especially for first-year plants. I planted four rhizomes last year, two Mt. Hood and two Cascade. The Cascade were a little slow getting off the ground, but the Mt. Hood exploded. This was a little...

One of the downsides of brewing your own beer is that when you see cool beer in the store, you remember that you have like 50 gallons of beer at home that needs to be consumed, so you can't really justify buying more.

An amazing buffet of VEGAN Thai food! Kids under 4 are free and they even brought us some sliced mango for the little ones, which was some of the best mango I've ever had.

Some excellent vegetarian options including a butternut squash enchilada, and some excellent tamales. Flan was also quite good.
