Aspen, Colorado

In April, 1997, I took a bus from Grinnell to Aspen, CO to attend the first annual conference of the short-lived Alliance For Community Networking (AFCN), an organization that aimed to "bridge the digital divide" with public computing centers nationwide. The conference itself was pretty forgettable, but I had a great hike up Aspen Mountain and took a few photos.

Mexico photos

Spring break of my senior year of high school (1994) I went to visit my friend Javier and his family in Mexico City. Spring break of my junior year of college (1997) I returned to visit them again, this time in Uruapan and Michoacán. Here are my photos from the two trips.

In August of 1993 I went with my parents to Japan. We traveled with my uncle Carl, who was living there at the time, visiting Tokyo, Tokushima, Hiroshima, Osaka, and Kyoto. See an album of my photos from the trip.

Supercomputer Honors Program 1993

In the summer of 1993, I was the delegate from Oklahoma to the Department of Energy's Supercomputer Honors Program ("Superkids") at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Because I wasn't allowed to bring my camera into the lab, most of my photos are from the off-site banquet at the end of the two weeks.
