Bill's Manly Phiz "Bill, what's your last name?"


long pause, meaningful look

Here's my resume .

In short, I work for IHME, which is an independent global health research center at the University of Washington. I write and maintain software, do research and assist other scientists with their work.  

Here's some stuff I do for fun.

Here's a place (jpeg. 34 kB) I really like to hang out.

I used to do a lot of kayaking (jpeg, 15 kB) with the UKC , but nowadays I canoe and sometimes do this (jpeg, 37 kB) .

I also like hiking, skiing, yoga, recovering from back injuries, and games . Because of all the time I spend in my chair at work (and 'cause I'm lazy), here's my best feature (jpeg, 45 kB) nowadays. At least that's what Karen , my wife, says.

A study of my Ancient History would also turn up running, basketball, basketball, soccer, volleyball, ultimate Frisbee, football, backpacking, being yelled at by people with short hair, traveling to foreign countries (fortunately only to Japan with the short-haired folk), doing hardware, and flooding things. I hope someday to return to doing a lot of these things, but not all of them.
