By day I’m a computer scientist at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, specializing in high performance computing  and atmospheric modeling. I have a master’s degree in Scientific Computing from the University of Minnesota; my thesis focused on Geophysical large-scale computing and visualization. Please see my publications page.

These days I am living in Guanacaste, Costa Rica. I am working remotely, surfing, leaning Spanish, and enjoying the slow pace of life here. I fell in love with the life here in Central America about two years ago.

In my past, I spent many nights dancing the Lindy Hop, which is an American swing dance created within black communities in Harlem during the 1920s and beyond. Unfortunately, do to the high impact nature of this incredible dance, my achilles tendons suffered greatly; this contributed to my partial “retirement” from my beloved hobby. Go to my dance page for more information.


Thanks for stopping by.
