I live in San Jose, CA, after growing up in Lexington, MA. I'm co-founder of a software company (FabTime) that helps computer chip manufacturers make their products more quickly. I have M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Industrial Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin and the University of Massachusetts. I got my bachelor's degree from Duke University.

I've always loved books, especially children's books and mysteries, and I feel strongly that more children should grow up with the opportunity to love books, and to love learning in general. To work towards these ends, I've started this blog. (For a more detailed explanation, see my mission statement.).
