I grew up in the City of Falls Church. Falls Church is a small town (in terms of land area anyway) in Northern Virginia. While there, I attended George Mason High School and received the International Baccalaureate Degree.

I went to college at the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, VA and double majored in Economics and Computer Science.

Currently, I'm a PhD student in the Computer Science Department at the University of Virginia. I completed a Masters degree in Computer Science in 2001 and am currently working on a PhD.
