Spent most of my life in California. Santa Barbara is about as far south as I go. Right now I'm in Santa Rosa.Received a Bachelor's Degree in Math and Statistics, then became an actuary for a while. It was all right, but a little dull. Decided to try for a Master's Degree in Statistics, but discovered it really wasn't for me. Tried my hand at teaching for a little bit, but that wasn't a good match either. Did some odd jobs and travelling, then finally went back to school and got a CS degree. Now I'm working as an Embedded C programmer.
