Degrees

1996 - Undergraduate degree in Computer Science from Utah State University.

Current field of Study

I’m currently (and always) learning more about network administration. I got interested in doing this type of work while working at USU as a lab aide. I like the fact that computers are not like people. If you tell a computer to do something, it does it. If it does not do what you expected, then you gave it incorrect instructions. They never talk back, don’t get upset when you do something wrong, and don’t lose patience with repeated failures.

Biggest Accomplishment in CS

I used to work at ARUP. While there, I wrote a program that diagnoses leukemia cases.
