Hello, my name is Jesse B. Crawford.
I am an undergraduate student at New Mexico Tech majoring in Information Technology and minoring in Technical Communications. I am a System Administrator at the Tech Computer Center, and I am also currently a Resident Assistant.
My key academic interests are information assurance (particularly network security) and large-scale IT infrastructure, particularly as it pertains to security and “cloudification.” I am also interested in web application development and information assurance as it pertains to physical access controls (e.g. electronic lock systems).
My personal interests include photography (especially architectural), music of most genres, humanism and human rationality, and philosophy in general. I spend what time my full-time student status allows on advocacy for gender and sexual minority (GSM) issues, ethical electronics recycling, and improved STEM education at the K-12 level.
I lived my entire life in Portland, Oregon up until attending New Mexico Tech. I graduated from Grover Cleveland High School as the Outstanding Business Student in 2010. While in high school I was heavily involved in the Future Business Leaders of America (I am a two-time national skills competition champion) and the FIRST Robotics Competition (Team 1432). While in Portland I worked or volunteered with the Democratic Party of Oregon, Free Geek, and the Blanchet House of Hospitality.
