My Path to Here

I've lived in a number of places over the years. Some for longer than others. I was born in New York City, and raised in Bergen County, NJ, which I think was one of the best places a person could have hoped to have had an upbringing. I was fortunate to have easy access to all that NY had to offer, while still being able to grow up on a relatively quiet suburban street.

Programming

Every job I have ever had has involved working with computers. From the IBM PC at my Grandfather's construction company, to work as an independent consultant in San Francisco, to co-owning and operating a small hotel in Palm Springs, whatever work I had, I found myself digging into how I could use the computer to make the job easier, do something new, or simply make the output better or more enjoyable. BASIC, Pascal, C, C++, Delphi, Java, HTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP, PL/SQL, Perl, Ruby, Python, Node.js, Objective C. Tools and technology have come and gone from my tool belt over the years, but the act of writing code has always been there for me.
