 h1. About Me
 
-I am a student and computer programmer living in North Carolina, which is a pretty cool state. I like to write programs in Python, especially Web programs, and occasionally dabble in Ruby, Lua and Haskell.
+I am a student and computer programmer working towards a degree in Computer Science at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, North Carolina. I code in Python, PHP (reluctantly), Ruby, Lua and a smattering of other languages. Most of my work to date has been in the domain of Web applications, but I am also interested in databases, data structures, programming language theory, and discrete mathematics.
 
-I am an avid Linux user and advocate. I currently use Arch Linux on my primary computer, and run Xubuntu on others.
+I am an avid Linux user and advocate, despite the fact that my primary computer is a Macbook Pro running Mac OS X. (Though it *does* dual-boot Arch Linux.)
 
-When not programming, I like to read, write, and rap. I also enjoy science fiction (esp. Star Wars), space, music, economics and political science, the "Carolina Hurricanes":canes, and snow.
+Non-programming subjects I am interested in include:
 
-[canes]http://hurricanes.nhl.com/
+* Linguistics
+* Transit planning
+* Space science
+* Economics
+* Political science
+* Music
+* Ultimate Frisbee
+* Baseball
+* Hockey
+* Snow
