About MeEdit


I'm a professional code monkey, presently working as a C# consultant in Omaha, NE. I think, breathe, and dream code because I have absolutely no friends or social life to speak of.

I enjoy reading, cooking, writing, and confounding strangers with my self-depreciating wit and droll humor.

Animal Rights BackgroundEdit


It turns out that human beings aren't the center of the moral universe.

In general, my animal rights philosophy is inspired by Peter Singer. I have been a strict vegan since 2004.
