I'm an embedded real-time Software Engineer living in Iowa.  I've been developing
software for over fifteen years.  I attended the [University of Iowa][UofI]
for [Computer Science][CompSci].  [Go Hawks!][GoHawks]  In my free time I have a
myriad of interests, most revolving around computing.  Right now my hot topic interests

 * Web programming
 * iPhone/iPad programming
 * Large scale computing
 * Networking
 * [DNA analysis][23andMe] in Python
 * [Genetic Algorithms][pyEvolve]
 * All things [Python][]
 * All things [Apple][].

I primarily work in C++, but I prefer to work in [Python][]
when possible and it makes sense.  I've worked with a number of other languages,
but these are my main languages right now.

This site is my way of participating in the greater internet community by sharing
my thoughts and ideas, and documenting things I've learned so others don't have
to struggle with the same things.  We all stand on the shoulders of those before
us, maybe this site can provide a tidbit of information for someone to stand on.
