I have a six year old named David, a five year old named Alec, a three year old named Lane, and a 1 year old daughter named Nora. The four cutest kids you will ever see. :p
I’ve been professionally creating things for 19 years …mostly as a developer. But I hold much appreciation for the design side of things.
My last application I worked on sold to a private party for “large sums of money.”
I saw none of it. :/
My application before that was in use on over 14,000 websites (in 2001).
I like to build critical-to-the-business applications so I tend to build things with tools that can scale and that can perform. These are not “throw away” apps either. Every one is developed with an assumed life expectancy of at least 10 years, more often longer depending on the business. That doesn’t sound like a long time, but in our industry, its forever minus 5 years.
I’m a Java expert. I submerse myself in any relevant technology out there. Lately it’s iOS, Rails, and forging steel.
I am a dog lover. I ski *and* snowboard. Kids these days should still learn to ski first. They need to respect their elders and the people that made it all happen. I prefer dirt bikes to four wheelers. Though, all gas powered vehicles turn me on. I drive a lifted Jeep Wrangler with big tires and gadgets for off-pavement activities. The best sport in the world is soccer, the runner up is hockey, followed by baseball and volleyball.
