About Me

Hello, and welcome to this random assortment of facts.

I have been developing software for a long time. I also manage software projects, but never both at the same time. Why do both, you ask? Well, I'm not a one-trick pony. I enjoy both the tactical aspect of writing code as well as the strategic aspect of keeping the customer happy, the development team happy and building software that will Do Something Useful.

Industries I've Worked

IT is everywhere! Most industries are very similar when it comes to employee needs, although one might think they're very different. I've seen Financial Traders get just as worked up and panicked as Healthcare Staff when their systems aren't working properly. My job is to make it so whatever the user wants to do is EASY and, in effect, so that they don't even notice me.*

Favorite OS

  • Mac OSX is my primary (the command line rocks for unleashing the power of bash)
  • Kubuntu for the DT
  • Gentoo for making a fast server out of old hardware
  • Debian for regular server
  • Windows XBox for the games

Preferred Browsers

  • Chrome, hands down
  • Firefox, if you're nasty
  • IE if you want me to hate my job

Favorite Languages

There isn't really a favorite, just languages that are better suited for a particular task/application.

  • Ruby
  • Perl
  • Objective C
  • Javascript
  • Java
  • PHP (not a favorite, but I can write some very elegant, TDD code for you!)
