I've been at Stanford since 1986, and have been in the Med School since 1987. I am currently responsible for our Help Desk, Desktop Support, and Network Operations areas.
I work for IRT, the information technologies group for the Stanford University School of Medicine.
To briefly summarize my personal info, I'm gay and have been with my
significant other for over 24 years, we have a son (Raphael) who is now 14
years old (!), I was a volunteer at ARIS (a group which provided support services for People with AIDS) from 1986-2003 (sadly, ARIS is no more, though the needs still exist), I'm a not-very-active
member of the Libertarian Party, and I'm the
former Treasurer (1994-2004) of the neighborhood association in Palomar Park.
I went to college at Simon's Rock (a unique and wonderful place), and at UC Santa Cruz. I started biking to work in 5/2004 (and on the weekends). Since 9/2004, I've been biking to work everyday, unless I need to drive. By 2/2006: I had been on many rides of 50 miles or more, and was typically do a multi-hour ride each weekend. At this point (2011), I have done a whole bunch of organized rides of either 60 miles or 100 miles, and have participated in the AIDS/LifeCycle 545-mile fundraiser ride from SF to LA three times! Needless to say, I'm getting in better shape, and it's a Good Thing!
Anyway, I suppose that I'll put more stuff up here if I can ever figure out what SHOULD be here...
