Bothell, WA 98011
Hello. Welcome to my webpage. Its purpose is many-fold. First, I hope to
find a centralized location to store my website so I do not have to keep
changing my web address. It is also a place for me to record some pictures
and news for family and friends. Finally, it is a place for me to record
some of my thoughts that people may find interesting and the little projects
I work on. I hope that on occasion I produce something that is useful to
someone other than myself. If someone has suggestions or comments, or I
simply did something incorrect, please feel free to let me know.
Still working and having fun.

Got back from Scotland and we had an awesome time. I really enjoyed the hiking, the people, and the cider. Now I am back to the real world.

Leaving for Scotland. Kristina and I will be hiking the West Highland Way. It should be a lot of fun. This will be my first international trip. I am really looking forward to spending some time in a foreign country and getting a chance to see it up close.

I am still working as a high school programming instructor at the SeaTac OSC, now called Puget Sound Skills Center (PSSC). I have put together a brief website about the class and you can visit it if you are interested at www.psscdigipen.net . Hopefully I will be adding significant content over the course of this school year.

I have been working as a high school programming instructor at the SeaTac OSC, a vocational school. I work as a contract teacher through DigiPen Institute of Technology, teaching Game Programming and Animation. It has been fun, and I have been doing this since the beginning of September. I have been pretty busy and tired trying to keep up with class material, so I have slacked off in my extracurricular activities. However, I am catching up so I may resume my work again soon. Other than that, I am basically working and sleeping and little else.
