Born and raised in Helena, MT, I'm a CS/EE student at Montana State University. I've always been interested in computers and networks, having spent the majority of my time in high school learning the various aspects of computer hardware and Linux in general. I'm a very strong FOSS and network neutrality advocate, and I love space, engineering, and science. I hope to contribute to a cause greater than myself, and would love to see more space research done in the near future. I'm currently working on the IRIS Solar Spectrograph Competition.
