I am interested in information retrieval with an emphasis on the use of Solr.

I have been working with computers since the early 80s when I began writing Apple Basic on an Apple ][+. I earned a Masters in Slavic Linguistics from the University of Illinois. At that time I had no idea how much linguistics would play a part in my future.

Working at Wolfram Research broadened my computer knowledge in a way I never thought possible. Since then I have worked at American Express, Motorola and Monsanto.

The last 7 years I have been happily working at Answers.com as a search expert heavily involved in bulding up their search technology systems.
