What is your Topcoder story?

I am veteran in Topcoder Marathon, started long time ago, back in 2003 competing in the Algorithm track. This will be my 8th TCO onsite participation (1 Algorithm and 6 Marathons so far), hope I can come back home with the championship this time!

Why Topcoder?

I am a really Topcoder enthusiast, I've learned a *lot* through all these years, and still feels there is a lot to be learned. Also I like competitions in general, as way to stay motivated and always try to improve our skills.

Tell us about something in your life, outside of Topcoder, that you are most proud of.

We have two small kids (ages 2 and 4), and although raising kids is much harder than solving TC problems, me and my wife are very proud of them.


We asked our finalists to play the word association game. We gave them a word and they gave us the first word that popped into their head.
