He was among the first generation of children who learned to program as a child and was enthralled at the prospect of machine intelligence at a very young age. However, he regards much of what passes for “AI” in modern times as a nihilistic anathema. In more recent years, he has become motivated by the philosophical implications of science, the nature of nature, and the things in life which hold “value” and all that that means.

This website is, perhaps, an unusual combination of both literary and technical works. His literary works have been published by New English Review Press, The Light Paper and TCW (formerly The Conservative Woman). He programs for both Linux and Windows using C++ and C#.
