/==============================\ | Staff Mini-Biography: Thomas | \==============================/
WHERE DID YOU GROW UP? WHAT WAS YOUR ACADEMIC PATH? I grew up and attended school on the North Shore of Chicago, came to UW and am now in my last year of pursuing my bachelor's. I'm also finishing up a physics minor this autumn quarter. HOW MUCH PROGRAMMING HAVE YOU DONE (& WHAT LANGUAGES)? I was mostly unfamiliar with CS until I took a course in high school and immediately fell in love. I've had programming experience in the various courses here, as well as an internship this past summer, and some personal projects. I've worked mostly in Java, C, and Python. I also enjoy functional (especially LISPy) languages. WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR HOBBIES, TALENTS, AND SKILLS? I spend most of my free time either with friends or fiddling with my server I've got running at home. If I'm not doing that, I'm probably wandering around, exploring Seattle or anywhere. I'm also hoping to get back into radio DJ'ing, which I've missed out on the past couple years. HAVE YOU DONE ANYTHING REMARKABLE? HAS ANYTHING MEMORABLE HAPPENED TO YOU? One remarkable thing I've done recently is break a world record in the video game, "Crazy Taxi 2". As for remarkable things that are relevant to anything, you're looking to the wrong guy. WHAT COMMITMENTS WILL BE CONSUMING YOUR CYCLES THIS QUARTER? Besides teaching, I'll mostly be hanging on the learning side of school. As mentioned above, I'm also hoping to get back into radio in UW's Rainy Dawg internet station.
