This is a listing of my schooling and higher education. But first, I wanted to quote the following lines from Daniel Hillis' "The Pattern on the Stone."

I etch a pattern of geometric shapes onto a stone. To the uninitiated, the shapes look mysterious and complex, but I know that when arranged correctly they will give the stone a special power, enabling it to respond to incantations in a language no human being has ever spoken. I will ask the stone questions in this language, and it will answer by showing me a vision: a world created by my spell, a world imagined within the pattern on the stone. The stone is a wafer of silicon, and the incantations are software.

I am a student of language processing, specializing in computer systems and algorithms which help translate between natural languages.
