You’ve reached my website! Just a brief note about the author. I’m currently a software engineer at Intel in Oregon. It’s been a long trip to get to this point, and had many twists and turns.
I started life in rural Indiana near Lafayette and grew up in a big family of 10. I attended Purdue University and got my bachelors degree in Computer Science in 1998. I then moved to Oregon where I worked at Intel as a software engineer for 5 years (including internships). I loved my job and worked in the Graphics and 3D technologies research group in Intel’s Architecture Labs (IAL) and helped write the Shockwave 3D engine before I started being tugging and pointed in a new direction. I took 4 years off work to live in a monastery during graduate school studying philosophy and theology.
I completed 4 years of grad school and have returned to the software world where I’m still working at Intel as a software engineer specializing in 3D graphics. I most recently worked on the Larrabee multi-core graphics project and am currently working the 3D graphic samples team here at Intel. I’m still not certain where this is all leading; but it has been the most amazing, challenging, fulfilling and growing experience so far. My theological studies have put me on the front-page of newspapers, met people I’d never expected (including the pope), traveled many places around the world, and had the honor of working with many great people.
