Biography

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. I also think that more adults should try reading children's books, and that the ones who do should be able to share their thoughts on children's books with others. To work towards these ends, I've started this blog. (For a more detailed explanation, see my mission statement.). I also volunteer for the Foundation and Friends of the Santa Clara City Library.
