About Me...
Spring 1999
  • Born in Saginaw, Michigan, and raised in nearby Midland.
  • Graduated from Midland High School in 1985.
  • Spent 1985-1986 in Gray, France (near Dijon) as a Rotary Club exchange student, where I studied mathematics at the Lycée Augustin Cournot and was fortunate to visit many different places in and around France. See also this nice English-language site created by students at Lycée Cournot to present Gray and its surroundings!
  • 1986-1990, attended the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, and graduated May 1990 with a B.A. in Computer Science and Political Science.
  • 1990-1995, worked for Andersen Consulting in Minneapolis, Minnesota (although Andersen Consulting renamed itself Accenture as of January 1, 2001). During this time, I worked for PRA Solutions, an enterprise wholly owned by Andersen Consulting.
  • 1995-1999, worked for Epic Systems Corporation in Madison, Wisconsin.
  • 1999-2004, worked again for PRA Solutions, which renamed itself Navitaire, Inc. as of January 1, 2001.
  • 2004-present, working again for Epic Systems Corporation in Madison.
  • In my spare time, I enjoy making occasional updates to the durussel.net web site. (Visit other personal pages there besides mine!)
  • I'm a bit of a political junkie. Check out these photos of me with Senator John Kerry:
    -- in Des Moines, Iowa after the Jefferson-Jackson Dinner on November 15, 2003; and
    -- in Madison after John Kerry captured the most votes in Wisconsin's presidential primary on February 17, 2004.
