Jeff is a self-proclaimed pragmatic futurist; that is, he has high hopes for absurd life-altering technologies which sound too good to be true, and probably are. Although he writes on a variety of subjects, his real passion is for technological innovation and the people who make it happen.

By night, he’s busy running MMR, replaying a random Final Fantasy game, or pretending to be Batman. He currently resides in Upstate NY.
