I was born in Detroit, MI in 1980, but I moved to Sarasota, FL in 1982 and grew up there. In 1998 I moved to Orlando, FL to attend the University of Central FLorida. I hope to graduate with a degree in accounting by fall of 2004. I then hope to continue on by either attending grad school or study business law. My main interest is music. I love guitar (acoustic, electric, 12-string...) and piano. If music and/or law don't work out for me in the future, I'll have a degree in accounting to fall back on.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I think it's incredibly selfish to assume we're alone in the universe. There are simply too many stars, many with their own planetary systems, to say that our solar system is the only one which sustains life. Yes, I believe there are lifeforms elsewhere in the universe. I run SETI@home because I believe in the cause. While I have no high hopes of coming in contact with extra terrestrial life tomorrow, or even 50 years from now, every last bit of number crunching makes a difference in the project overall. I've always been taken by astronomy (not particularly the ET aspect of it all...I'm more into the stars, nebulae, and terrestrial phenomena such as black holes, pulsars, and quasars), but nevertheless, this is a project I enjoy being a part of. If the day comes when we make contact with another lifeform in the universe, it will undoubtedly be the most significant event history has ever seen.
