Personal Information[edit]

I joined Wikipedia in June 2005. I'm a clinical trial software developer who grew up in New York, lived for almost 20 years in Massachusetts and moved to the Ann Arbor, Michigan area in 2004. I'm an only child of an only child, I enjoy ice hockey and bicycling and I am afflicted with insomnia, dysphemia, deuteranopia and severe myopia. I'm probably a WikiGnome, too.
