I am a software engineer and mathematician, and have done some work on spread spectrum, including a patent on a pseudonoise generator and one on a type of direct-sequence spread spectrum modulation. I currently draw land surveys and do various computer work.

I have lived in the Charlotte, North Carolina area for over twenty years, with an interlude in California. I was born in New York shortly after Surtsey.

I am related on my mother's side to Alicia Lardé, who married John Nash.

I am a native bilingual, though a bit influent in French because I don't get much practice here in America. I speak Spanish pretty well, but sometimes mix Spanish and French. I also know various amounts of other languages and sometimes astonish foreigners by saying something in their language. I am also contributing to Lojban.

For the past couple of years I have been studying taxonomy. Most of the Lojban taxonomy chart (so far) is by me. I am a creationist (old earth), so I tend to dislike cladistics.

I am an aspie; I can remember vast information about computers, mathematics, and taxonomy (of languages as well as life) but may get baffled by interpersonal interaction.

These days I'm on Wiktionary more often than Wikipedia. I have contributed to Wikitravel (see my user page) and will on future trips.
