I'm from Atlanta Ga, USA. I'm the Enterprise Systems Manager for a fortune 500 company. In my spare time I like to do woodworking and play with my kids. Since I have quite a few machines for various things, I wanted to donate time to a cause I felt worthwhile. Though SETI is nice, I'd rather my machines do something more useful with more immediate applications, hence why I joined Rosetta.

Rosetta is one of those projects that you know is going to produce something useful for humanity. I like these types of projects because in the end, maybe my machines actually helped.
