About Me

What I believe

One of the most important things you can know about me is that I have accepted TheGospel, the good news that there is a loving God who sent his Son into this world to offer it's inhabitants life. For God demonstrated his love for us in this, that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. What a great and precious gift that was! He has died as a ransom to set us free from sin.

What I do

I am a professional geek. I collect programming languages like some people collect stamps on their passports. I am a connoisseur of Ruby, PHP, Perl, Python, Lisp, Javascript, Rebol, Smalltalk, SH/Bash/Zsh, and C -- just to name a few. I am among the minority that actually like perl regular expressions, and I generally have more fun with interpreted languages than compiled ones.

I do a variety of things with this knowledge -- design websites, build databases, write automation software, do security auditing, statistical analysis, and design user interfaces. I can also take any of the above and find a way to connect them to each other and make them work together.
