I am a technologist, a scientist, a musician, a writer, and a father. I work at Cigital near the blue ridge mountains in Dulles, VA. I live on the Shennandoah river about a mile from the Appalachain Trail in a house built in 1760. Berryville, VA is the closest town, but we're much closer to the Holy Cross Abbey. I am married to Amy Barley. Together, we raise our two boys Jack and Eli.
I grew up in the woods next to a creek in Tennessee, and at heart I am a country boy. I am very pleased to live on a farm with a large menagerie and a creek that empties into the river. As an undergraduate, I studied Philosophy at the University of Virginia. My advisor in grad school was Doug Hofstadter, author of Godel, Escher, Bach. I worked on the Letter Spirit program. Amy and I spent 1994 in Trento, Italy. We moved back to Virginia in 1995.
