Inquisitive developer, programming teacher, avid reader, music lover, gamer; INTP; father.

  • web development veteran -- PHP, JS, CSS, the works
  • several years of C#/WPF/MVVM experience
  • used to fire a lot of C++ but not in anger for quite some time
  • know Windows Forms, WCF, ASP.NET MVC
  • lightly poked Python and Ruby

PHP is probably the ugliest language I 've ever used. So why do I love it?

You can contact me as "talegame" at Gmail until I get a blog.
