I've been a software developer since my parents first bought me a TI-99/4A in kindergarten, and professionally since 2000. I've worked on all sorts of systems, including customer service, intranets, data collection, point-of-sale, emergency telephony, automotive sales, and hospitality. I've also been active in the open-source community, both contributing to others' and maintaining my own projects, working in areas like software packaging, web application platforms, virtualization, and deployment.

I believe in simplicity and correctness in software design, seeking to create software that solves problems neatly and understandably, not just in development, but in deployment and operations as well.
