I am a software developer, with a background in computer engineering, signal processing, programming languages, information retrieval, image/video, and music/audio. I've got experience with projects large and small; commercial, non-profit, open-source, and academic. I have used all sorts of programming languages and paradigms, from Z80 assembly language to ML. Right now, I'm way into Python.

I love tricky problems, elegant solutions, and learning new things in general. I believe programming is an art, as much as any piece of music or visual work, which I feel qualified to say as an avid amateur musician and photographer. I'm constantly proven right when I encounter incredibly clever methods of problem solving on a daily basis here on Stack Overflow.

comment What lenses should I take with my Nikon D5100 for a trip through China and Nepal?
I'll second the Tokina 11-16mm. And this is a pretty good argument on how best to use it: kenrockwell.com/tech/how-to-use-ultra-wide-lenses.htm. I also find that using Lightroom's perspective adjustment allows you to get all sorts of useful results.

comment Are there any photo uploading services that are tailored to a shared family account?
Yeah, it's certainly not perfect. But it may fit certain users' needs. I don't think anyone's made a solution yet that really covers all the bases.
