I am currently living in the San Francisco Bay Area in California, United States.
I work for Google as a Developer Advocate in Mountain View, California.
I grew up in Adelaide, Australia, where I went to university and did a PhD, and worked for a number of years
as the Co-Director of the Wearable Computer Lab.
I have two wonderful doggies that were adopted from the K-9 Pals at the local
Santa Barbara animal shelter. Mila is a Staffordshire Terrier mix and
Dylan is a Pit Bull mix, and they are both fantastic dogs. They love to play in the yard, sleep in
their beds inside, and get super excited to go on their evening walk every day. They are both super sweet, and they love people. Unfortunately
many dogs get a bad reputation from the misinformation spread by the news media. If you want to know more about my doggies, I recommend that
you check out the Our Pack web site, which has a lot of good information. If you are looking for a dog, please
remember there are millions of dogs euthanized each year who are waiting to be adopted from your local animal shelter.
I love to go sailing, from either Santa Cruz with Pacific Sail, or in the San Francisco bay with
OCSC. I typically take out boats like 36 foot Catalina sail boats. Sailing around the Bay Area is really amazing.
