I am a software engineer with 30+ years' experience employed as a Senior Software Developer at AccuWeather. I also volunteer for Civil Air Patrol as squadron commander of Williamsport Composite Squadron 401 and as a mission pilot. I have a consulting website for occasional small projects that come up that don't conflict with my regular job.
In 2013, I attended PhillyETE, LambdaJam, Harvard's Freshman Convocation (as marshal), and StrangeLoop, my 30th Harvard Reunion, and the Head of Charles® Regatta. So far in 2014, I attended NEScala and LibrePlanet.
→ I love this video to remember Harry Parker, masterfully put together by Eliot Hodges. Harry Parker is the reason I wanted to go to Harvard. At Harvard, Harry was by far the most significant person in my life, and Harry has remained a positive influence in the decades since, not just for me, but for multiple generations of Harvard rowers spanning more than a half century. I was very lucky to spend an extra eight years ('88–96) coxing out of Newell boathouse seeing him every day, training with college and national team athletes as we worked hard to prepare for future great moments. I'm going to miss Harry, but I will remember him forever. Thank You Harry!
We moved from Boston to Williamsport, PA (map) in 1999 to further my wife Robin's career. She is an assistant professor at Lycoming College, teaching Old Testament, History of the Ancient Near East, Biblical Hebrew and Archaeology.
