Research Scientist

Spoken Languages


Programming Languages

Several, changes with the job and the times


microbiology, genetics and database programming


Learning how things work, and then making new things with what I have learned.

  • Everyone agreed, putting the helmet on made Bob’s horn look more whimsical rather than just freakish.

  • Remember, Crazy Glue pranks on Viking Funeral day have lasting consequences.

    need to be edited to read:
    define MP3_XDCS 7 //Data Chip Select / BSYNC Pin
    define MP3_DREQ 2 //Data Request Pin: Player asks for more data
