About this site

So, you've reached (probably accidently) this little corner of my ego manifested on the web. Where to from here? Well, you can check out my occasional rants, read some technical programming articles, peruse my bagel reviews, even check out some music.

You can also read a little bit about me below, or if you're really interested, my résumé is also available.

When you've exhausted those avenues, if you haven't already done so, go check out Lisa's pages, my other (and better) half.
