I enjoy clean, object oriented code, simple & powerful api's and slick solutions. I try to give back but more often than not I ask more than I answer :)

I work at a silicon coast .com doing back end integration and big-ish data work.

I am primarily interested java, Eclipse and maven. However, I've been known to dink around in Python, Perl, Bash Scripts, Windows Scripts, HTML, javascript, PHP, CSS, C, ASP, VB, C#, OSGi, PDE, RCP...and the list goes on. Lately I've been learning hbase, hadoop and getting really deep in solr.

I occasionally blog here and I have contributed open source code & documentation here and here.

One of my mentors, my team architect has a term for these types of people: "paycheck players".
