About Me

I live in the Baltimore MD/Washington DC corridor and work as a sales engineer for the Federal sales group of Infoblox. See my professional biography for more information.

I blog here on a variety of semi-random topics that I happen to be interested in, including Howard County, Maryland (where I live) and politics (after a fashion). Past topics have included Mozilla and open source, life as an eMusic subscriber, and my thoughts about music and the music business in general. (The music-related posts were formerly on my Swindleeeee!!!!! blog, which I’ve since discontinued and merged with this blog.) I also have a set of posts about my past experiences running the Blosxom blog software which may still be of interest to any remaining Blosxom users, and a separate blog in which I post my math homework. Finally, I’m author of the book Dividing Howard: A History of County Council Redistricting in Howard County, Maryland.
