        I am a college graduate from California State University Northridge (CSUN), with two bachelor's degrees in Computer Science and Geography, falling once class short of a Minor in Mathematics. My interest in computers and software development in general began shortly after taking my first course in Geographical Information Systems. My current goal is to engineer software that uses computer graphics to aid others in performing their tasks. I also enjoy solving logical and mathematical problems, and am an active participant on Project Euler. By the time I retire I hope to be activly engaged in contributing to open source drivers for graphics hardware within a linux based environment.
