Software Developer (Senior)
United States United States
I began coding at the ripe old age of eleven (yep, I've always been a nerd). Back then every 8-bit computer on the market had its own flavor of BASIC burned into the EPROM and I was adept at most of them. Somewhere in my bedroom there was an actual bed, but you'd be hard pressed to find it surrounded as it was. My collection included a C64, VIC20, TRS80, APPLE II+, TI-99/4A, and even one of those silver Timex Sinclair "computers" with the chicklet keys.

Eventually I taught myself 6502 assembler, and later Pascal and C. While I spent the majority of my professional career doing a mixture of C++, C#, and dabbling in ARM Assembler, for the last year I've been focusing on JAVA and the Android Platform. While I am a Windows guy at heart lately I'm finding some love for UBUNTU as well.

When I am not at the computer I am hanging out with my 12 year old son. He just finished coding a javascript implementation of Conway's Game of Life. Oh yeah, I guess that means we were in front of the computer. Go figure!
