My name is Andrew Brinker.

I am a Systems Engineer at MITRE. In my free time I build stuff in Rust (like this website!), contribute to open source projects, and sometimes blog.

I have a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science with a minor in Mathematics from California State University, San Bernardino, where I graduated in 2015. My major interests include type theory, programming language theory, and concurrent and/or distributed systems.

Right now I live in West Virginia, but I grew up in San Bernardino, CA, a city you may know for its groundbreaking municipal bankrupty, its status as the second poorest city of its size in the US after Detroit, or for the December 2nd terrorist attack at the city's Inland Regional Center. Contrary to what you may expect from all of that, it was a nice place to grow up.

I am an avid Pathfinder player and run a small roleplaying blog called The Crafty Kobold. I'm currently working on my own roleplaying system.
