Washington, DC Metro
I'm a Freelance Web, Linux and Open Source Consultant. I believe that everyone should have the right to do what they want with their software and not have their hands tied by companies like Microsoft and Apple and their Closed Source, proprietary software.
I'm a bicycle commuter and runner, Ferris State University hockey fan, Socialist, Vegan, very Liberal Catholic, animal lover, earth lover and container gardener wannabe. I'm also anti-guns and anti-war. More than once, I've been called a peace-loving, tree-hugging Liberal. I always thank them for the compliment even though I know it wasn't meant as one.

"Compassion is the keen awareness of the interdependence of all things." ~Thomas Merton
"If you feel that hatred has overwhelmed you, remain silent. Say nothing until, by ceaseless prayer and self-recrimination, you have calmed your heart." ~St. Hilarion of Optina
"If you don't want your tax dollars to help the poor, then STOP saying that you want a country based on Christian values, because you don't!" ~Jimmy Carter
