I have a Bachelor's degree in English Literature from the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC)and an Associate's degree in Journalism from Cabrillo College, located in Aptos, California.
I was born and raised in Greenbelt, Maryland. At this point in my life, I have travelled to every state in the contiguous U.S.A. and Hawaii. I took trips to Japan and Alaska in 2002. In 2004, I ventured out of America again and took a trip to the nature island of Dominica in the West Antilles. I also took my first cruise aboard a ship called the Grandeur of The Seas in the Royal Caribbean fleet of cruise liners in 2004. The ship stopped in San Juan, the Bahamas, St. Thomas and St. Maarteen. I got to snorkel and take pictures of tropical fish with an underwater camera. It was very cool. Hence, I can't wait to see what 2005 has in store for me? :-)
I am a big fan of the entire Star Trek series and look forward to the next big screen movie!
To get more details about me, check out my website:
As Jodie Foster's character, Ellie, stated in the movie "Contact" - "If it is just us in the universe...it seems like an awful waste of space."
I run Seti@Home because I have always been fascinated with space exploration and astronomy.
I also run the Seti@Home program because my father, Harold Aryai Siegel, worked for RSI and this company was involved in building the receiver array for the Arecibo Radio Observatory, which is where most (if not all?) of the work units being analyzed by the Seti program were recorded.
My father passed away in 1999 - but his work lives on with this Seti program. All the work units analyzed by my Seti@Home program are dedicated to him.
My Seti@Home efforts on BOINC are the latest efforts I have made to continue my commitment to the distributed computing network.
I look forward to tracking my credits using BOINC.
