About me:

In December of 2010 Dachary and I mounted our motorcycles and skirted the oncoming edge of Snowmageddon as we began our 18,000 mile ride to the southern tip of South America. It changed everything in our lives and gave us a relentless passion for more.

When I’m not exploring the world, I’m writing; mostly software, but sometimes books.

Web Dev:

I’ve been programming for over thirty years; the last fifteen plus professionally. Over that time, I’ve come to the simple conclusion that languages and frameworks are largely irrelevant. The only things that matter are practice, discipline, and the ability to learn from your mistakes. Combine these things with a passionate concern for the experience of your patrons, and almost anything is achievable.

I believe that @font-face and Responsive CSS are the two most significant things to happen to the web in the past ten years. Programming frameworks, regardless of how amazing or productive they are to programmers, matter not one whit to the users of your site.

My Resume is available, should you be curious.

Writing:

I steal time from my myriad other projects to write. Like most geeks, I love to go off about the “best” ways to go about things, and writing is a way of sharing what I’ve learned. In the past, I would write about programming. These days, it’s all about helping people to plan for their next adventure — especially the ones that take place astride a motorcycle. There’s also a children’s book in the works… it’s a mystery to me why that came about.

Like any good geek, I've got blog, where I occasionally wax philosophical about life, business, code projects, and review a variety of things from books to software.

Some of the more notable online writings are:

Some of the aforementioned reviews:

Entrepreneurial:

I’ve worked for myself, and I’ve worked for others, but I’ve always got a few business ideas brewing. These days, they’re iOS apps and web sites, with an eye towards funding future adventures.
