If you have AFS, you may find it more efficient to look at
my home page directly. Or, if you encounter problems,
revert back to using the HTTP server.
After 3-1/2 years of drinking from the firehose,
I received my S.B. in Electrical Engineering from
For the next several years, I continued staying by the fire hydrant,
Distributed Computing and Network Services Development
, a group within
MIT Information Systems, helping to enhance the campus-wide
Athena Computing Environment.
My responsibilities included:
However, I felt I needed to broaden my horizons, and continued my journeys
elsewhere. This was not without its consequences, as AFS decided it missed
me, and without my watchful eye, it succeeded in evolving into a poltergeist.
As a result,
Matt Braun won the Big Screw contest by an overwhelming
margin, running on behalf of AFS. However, even though I no longer
work at MIT, I still try to help out by suggesting solutions to some of
the problems, such as have been seen with AFS.

Since leaving MIT, I have worked as a software engineer for
Xylogics, helping to enhance their Network Access Devices, the Annex
product family. There I had the opportunity to become increasingly
involved in various business aspects, including marketing and strategic
planning. Now I am pursuing another attractive opportunity within the
financial sector, and will be continuing my career at Lehman Brothers,
where I will be involved in architecting solutions for building global
I enjoy architecting solutions that enhance information exchange and
their infrastructures. Some of my interests include developing learning
organizations, analyzing consumer markets and business processes, and
engineering technological solutions to meet business needs in a
Environments that offer such opportunities interest me; if you feel
there is a need for someone with my background, please review my
resumé, and contact me. I am not actively seeking a job, but
I always remain open to new opportunities.
While at MIT, I used to be involved in the
MIT UHF Repeater and Amateur Radio clubs,
as well as being an associate member of the
Student Information Processing Board.
After moving down to New Jersey, my involvement in these organizations diminished, and I no longer am involved in such things as the
SIPB Web server maintenance.
I am usually spotted with
doing such things as hiking in the White Mountains, or canoeing in
the Okeefenokee Swamp (Georgia).
Work and play are not all that I do... You might find me at the scene
of a disaster, wearing
Red Cross identification,
helping the victims, or in a classroom teaching CPR and First Aid to the
community, or on an ambulance responding to medical emergencies.
