Location Amherst, Massachusetts, United States
Introduction Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm a software engineer from Worcester, MA. My driving philosophy in life is that self and freedom of choice are illusions, that I am a clump of mindless atoms that have by chance come together--if only for a brief moment--to grant me the precious gift of consciousness and subjective experience--I am a Zen Machine.
