>> My name is Michael Jay Sherman. I graduated from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA, double majoring in physics and computer science. I escaped on the 17th of May, 1998 with two Bachelor's degrees in hand, and am now working at Digital Sandbox, Inc. in the D.C. area. I'm currently working on 3D graphics sims with OpenGL and writing physical simulation code. Oh, and I'm a UNIX/Linux geek. And yes, I carry my Palm IIIx everywhere.

[picture of me] I was born in Somerville, NJ but grew up in Herndon, VA, located a few miles west of Washington, DC (next to Dulles International Airport) in Fairfax County. I went to high school at the Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in Alexandria, and graduated in June of 1994. I am a Christian (member of Southview Baptist Church), a conservative, and in the world of politics, a Republican. I'm a member of the PCA, ACM, APS, and the NRA. Some people may label me a cynic, however in fact I'm just a realist.
