A 40-something geek (and husband and father), typical of many though I'm not much of a gamer. Professional software developer for 21 years, specializing in library design and user interfaces. Current focus is on html5 technologies. Past experience includes Java/J2EE and PHP/MySQL.
Hobbies include landscape and event photography (no, I'm not for hire - support your local professionals), morris and scottish dance, celtic music, renaissance faires, contemporary classical (anything Debussy and beyond), progressive rock, some (not all) sci-fi/fantasy genre works, and classic and (some) modern PBS kids shows. In a retro mood, I do still listen to classic 80s and acoustic new age guitar.
Been living in Northern, VA (not a real town) for more than 30 years old now. And I like snow. Lots of it.
Professionally, I am working in SproutCore, JQuery, and am investating the new JET UI kit for Oracle's Alta design.
Current personal projects generally involve Vanilla JS, JQuery, JQuery Mobile, Stativus, Observe-JS, and I am currently working on a lighter-weight ViewModel layer, as I think that too many libraries out there are too large as they replicate (without polyfills) too much of what modern Vanilla JS standards are able to provide.
