Married for 9 years. We have 3 girls aged 7, 5 & 1.

Almost immediately after I first connected my first 2400 modem to the local BBSs I began doing UI. I would trade my ANSi art skills for free access. Joined one of the top ANSi art groups CiA (Creators of Intense Art) as agent_42. We released monthly packs of digital art.

I am now working mostly on freelance client-side web development projects and contributing to various open source projects.

This mostly ends up being minor release announcement, tips and tricks, etc…

I desperately need to update the blog engine and client-side. I haven't updated any of that since 2005.

Open Source
Open source for many of my little toy projects. I also love to contribute to other peoples projects.
