About Me[edit]

Liliumbulbiferumflowertop.jpg

I'm a professional code monkey, presently working as a C# consultant in Omaha, NE. I think, breathe, and dream code because I have absolutely no friends or social life to speak of.

I enjoy reading, cooking, writing, and confounding strangers with my self-depreciating wit and droll humor.

Animal Rights Background[edit]

It turns out that human beings aren't the center of the moral universe.

In general, my animal rights philosophy is inspired by Peter Singer. I have been a strict vegan since 2004.
