I am a software engineer who lives in the Seattle, WA area. This is my personal blog site where I write about random technical topics that interest me. I have an Ed.D. doctorate in (interdisciplinary) psychology and research methodology from the University of Southern California, an MS in information systems from Hawaii Pacific University, a BA in applied mathematics from California State University at Fullerton, and a BA in cognitive psychology from the University of California at Irvine. I am particularly fascinated by mathematical combinatorics, the analysis of gambling systems, machine learning, and algorithms based on the behavior of natural systems.
