My degree was in Applied Mathematics with a minor in Computer Science. I've been a software developer since 2004; C# is my primary language recently. My greatest software interest is in the field is Artificial Intelligence. I have been interested in space exploration as long as I can remember. I hope that we can become a truly space-faring race one day, which is just not realistically possible without solving some daunting engineering challenges. So among my keenest interests are ideas that reduce the energy required for escape velocity, like space elevators, or ways to harness and expend much more energy without destroying the planet.
