  • A brief bio January 1, 0001

    Education and career I studied computer science and mathematics at the Santa Fe Community College in NM. During this time, I taught myself enough Haskell to write most of a simple compiler for Haskell’s intermediate language Core. I’d tutor fellow students in my Python course. I volunteered as a generalist technician, repairman, and software person at Computer Charity, Inc. in Santa Fe. My grades meant I qualified for the Phi Theta Kappa honor society’s scholarship which allowed me to attend a four-year university.
