I type lots of itty-bitty characters in the hope that they'll do something useful.

I develop applications for the web that serve thousands, and sometimes millions, of users.

I specialize in back-end fun these days, but have a long history of trying to make Internet Explorer do something approaching sensible, and other activities generally described as front-end.

I love to read and study the hardcore concepts of computer science, as well as the whole shebang/gamut of computing history. Areas of particular interest are SmallTalk, Lisp, and the amazing work done at Apple in the late 70s and early 80s.

I also do nerdy stuff with electronic music, and when I find time I also read the mainstay of all geeks: science fiction. I guess I'm true to type. I also enjoy watching vintage movies of all sizes and subjects, but have a fondness for B-movies and dystopic tales.

Cue the Zombie Apocalypse!
