Meet a person with enough coding skills to get roped into web page maintenance.

I’m a nerd, a personal astrophysicist of the local club, and Trekkie.
I joined club effort because I believe that supporting science means supporting the better future of our country. And since the science is the partisan thing today, I support a party that supports science.
And I’m quite irked by all those corrupt characters in government, so I support actions for transparency, limiting of lobbying, limiting of terms, and forcing representatives to represent us, not corporations.
