Kia ora! I'm a native of Lawrence, Kansas who has lived in Wellington, New Zealand since 2003.
I consult in the telecommunications industry as an engineer and technical architect. I'm also an approved radio certifier in New Zealand.
With the University of Oregon's Network Startup Resource Centre, I spend some of my time teaching network engineering in developing countries.
Papers I have written on Internet Affordability, Internet Topology, Dynamic Radio Spectrum, and the Internet of Things have been presented at conferences around the world.
In 2011 I exited Araneo, a wholesale microwave telco I founded in 2004. Before that I worked for Pfizer Pharmaceuticals on Information Architecture & Discovery Informatics teams in Connecticut and Boston. I was also a US Peace Corps volunteer (Poland 15).
Longer ago I spent a summer at Interlochen. I have a BSc from the University of Kansas. I also blog, cook, travel, and take pictures.
