Senior Year Begins
(9/28/04 - ZT)
This semester I'll be taking compiler engineering, computer graphics, and pervasive human-centric computing. It looks like there'll be a large amount of C++/Java/Python programming - definitely a good thing. Later in the semester I hope to post some of my programs, including a complete ray tracer!

Kathleen Rubritz Google Challenge
(9/17/04 - ZT)
While in New York City I had the opportunity to meet one of the famed software engineers of my lifetime - Kathleen Rubritz. Although unknown to many, Ms. Rubritz is on track to be featured as Time's "Person of the Year" someday. One of our discussions involved me beating her in Google rank for the search term "Rubritz". This is my attempt to achieve greatness.

Monet Goes High Tech
(5/12/04 - ZT)
For the final project of my microcontroller project laboratory I created a machine that could paint in the impressionistic style of Monet. Replacing muscles with motors and mastery of painting with a computer, this machine could paint anything! Check out the action-packed video for details!

Manhattan Madness
(3/30/04 - ZT)
This summer I have chosen to intern at Morgan Stanley in New York City. I can't wait to live in the city and experience all it has to offer! During the past month I visited the city twice to interview and took some pictures which I've posted.

From Monet to Matczynski
(1/20/04 - ZT)
What could be more beautiful than a stunning landscape painted by Claude Monet? After a recent trip to Boston's Museum of Fine Arts I felt inspired. Inspired to become an impressionist! After purchasing paints and other supplies, I set out to create my masterpieces. Check out how I'm doing in the gallery.

Boston Marathon 2004
(1/20/04 - ZT)
After running all summer in Albuquerque I decided it was time to attempt something more - a marathon. A 26 mile, 385 yard celebration so to speak. Being a college student in Cambridge MA, I've been a spectator at past years marathons. Maybe 2004 would be the year I'd actually stop watching and start running.

Pictures from Arizona
(8/6/03 - ZT)
Arizona is a beautiful state! From breathtaking canyons to ancient ruins from past civilizations, Arizona has it all. This past summer I spent three days experiencing the Grand Canyon, Saguaro National Park, and more! Pictures have been posted of my excellent adventure.

Life in Albuquerque, New Mexico
(7/28/03 - ZT)
Working only nine and a half hours a day, there's time to explore and experience New Mexico. Although being in the middle of desert has disadvantages, there's still plenty to do. Albuquerque is a great location for running due to its high elevation and numerous hills.

Tentative Junior Year Schedule
(6/15/03 - ZT)
Two years of MIT down, two more to go! Next semester looks like a great deal of fun! Signals and Systems, Computational Structures, Microelectronic Devices and Circuits, and more!

Timpani and Percussion
(1/18/03 - ZT)
My favorite past time is music, so I've created a page dedicated to my encounters with timpani and percussion. Listed are all pieces the MIT Symphony Orchestra has played during the past two years, as well as a list of pit orchestras I've been in and solos I've performed.

Simmons Hall Pictures Posted
(12/29/02 - ZT)
Imagine, a dorm made of thousands of little windows and cave like walls of concrete! This is no joke, and I happen to be lucky enough to live there. Some people would say that Stephen Holl is a fabulous architect. Others would say he's crazy. You be the judge! After viewing these pictures, you'll form your own opinion. Pictures of my dorm are now posted.

Sophomore Year Begins - Artificial Intelligence "Looks Promising"
(9/23/02 - ZT)
My second year has started MIT! This year is looking as good as ever, with a wide variety of classes in my schedule.
