Part time computer science student
Left after 2 years to pursue opportunities in the software industry (Reed has no computer science department).
Graduated with honors, including "Star Student" for highest SAT in the class.
I live on and maintain a 30 foot sailboat. Though cramped, this allows me to combine the joys of home ownership with the possibility of sinking far from land. My wife and I recently completed a trip from Portland, OR around Vancouver Island, BC, and south to San Francisco Bay.
Space limits my other hobbies, which include photography, hi-fi audio, electronics and tube amp construction, Orchids, Bamboo, making wine, beer, and cider, and collecting wild edible mushrooms.
