Hi I'm Adam

I've been programming computers since I was five. I graduated college at 18. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a designer, a programmer, an artist, an entrepreneur, a writer, a minimalist, a transhumanist, a blatant optimist, an uncompromising idealist, a not-yet-fluent Japanese speaker (soon, though; mission language!), and an active, creative citizen of the Internet. I've been able to program computers at least since I was five. This is not hyperbole; I have pictures of myself in a diaper on a high chair playing with one of those old beige desktops. I'm passionate about Linux and Open Source. I used to be terrified of space - of the concept of nothing. But I've discovered that space is anything but empty. It's full of vast and beautiful worlds, and fun technical challenges just waiting to be beaten. Now, I'm certain I'll set foot on and likely retire to another planet.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon not in spite of science and technology, but because of it. One of the core beliefs of Mormonism is that we can all eventually become gods and goddesses. This idea, in a way, defines me more than anything else. After all is said and done, we do the most good in and for this world and the next when we explore and create.

How I live my faith

I'm about to leave (September 2015, in case I'm unable to update this frequently) on a mission to Japan. While there, I will eat, sleep, and live the gospel. My primary duties will be to teach people about Christ and his Plan of Happiness and help them to prepare for baptism into the LDS church.
