I work as a software developer for an auto company.  I'm married, no kids but several pets.  I'm passionate about science, technology, outer space, the environment, and animals.  I'd like to thank the team at Charity Engine and all who participate.

I've been participating in distributed computing since SETI@home was released.  Later I began using BOINC and joined the Einstein@Home project.  I liked the Charity Engine variation of distributed computing and switched to their client.  Hopefully it gets even more people involved.  You really can get lucky and win while helping!
