I grew up in the Chicago area and now live in North Dakota. I studied physics, math and experimental research. I work at a laboratory as a crystallographer and research scientist.
I am also an entrepreneur, musician and artist. I love open source hardware, and am interested in too many things to list. My wife of 18 years and I have six beautiful children. We are a catholic home schooling family.
My son Gaelen is an illustrator; he made the background image.
