My name is Andrew Brinker.

I'm 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 or its status as the second poorest city of its size in the US after Detroit.

I am an avid Pathfinder player and run a small roleplaying blog with two of my good friends, called The Crafty Kobold. My current campaign is called ”Second Seekers”, and the sequel campaign (currently in the works) is called ”Glory Over All”. I'll be putting materials for both campaigns up soon enough, so that others can use them if they'd like.

I also play Destiny and Halo, and sometimes Titanfall or Borderlands.
