A Brief History
I’ve been writing code in some form or other since I was 19. I was a student at Ohio State majoring in Actuarial Science when I took a prerequisite course called “Programming in Pascal”. It didn’t take long for me to realize that was how my brain worked and soon after I switched majors to Computer Science. At the time I was also working in the Math Department for a now defunct state-funded program, and it’s there where I cut my programming teeth. HTML 1.0, Emacs on a Unix machine, and the NCSA Mosaic web browser. I threw myself straight into the early years of the Internet.
Fast forward 25+ years and I’ve been around the block a few times. I’ve built systems big and small, worked for Fortune 500 companies, provided services for mom-and-pop shops, helped launch successful products, did the independent consultant thing, started my own software company, and have worked on more side projects than I can count.
