A long term network and linux geek, I work as a sales engineer for Cisco by day. I am interested in improved collaboration technologies (SIP/H.323 video & voice) on the Linux desktop and interoperability with widely deployed enterprise solutions. I don't code as often anymore, but at one time or another I've done significant work in C++, Java, Perl, Gofer/Haskell, and Prolog. More recently, I hack Python occasionally for fun, and have picked up a little bit of R. I have a dusty M.S. in Computational Biosciences, and I've previously held a number of technology certifications including CCNP, CCDP, CCNA, CCDA, CISSP, CMNA, CWTS, and Acano ACE (#104).
