#tabletopday .  I really wanted to play Munchkin for Table Top Day. So my good firned +Robert Saxon and I went on an epic quest to find Munchkin. We finally found it at local gaming store Firefly Toys and Games in Lexington.  We returned with our spoils (and free promo shit!!).  Then, my eight year old daughter and his even younger son managed to kick our asses!!  What followed was more Munchkin followed by some Magic (I know, not a Table Top, but fun!)  All and all a spectacular night of three of the most important things in life: Friends, Games and Pizza!

Last week, my daughter and I took advantage of the warmer weather and spent some time at the park.  As we were leaving, we stumbled upon a snake, who quickly slithered into the water.

Here is my daughter and her class conducting the weekly school gathering.  It's math themed.  I couldn't get all of it, my phone died...but at least I got Luba!!  Also, it's a phone so it's a bit shaky!!

Story
Tagline
Software Developer. Open Web Engineer. Father of a geek girl.
Introduction

I was born in Greensboro NC. When I was 12, my parents moved the entire family to Kazakhstan whereI became very active in the hacker community. Me and my friend Kostya Tayban started running BBS's from our homes and were for a time connected to the FidoNet.

I came to the states in 2000 and in 2001 moved to Charlotte NC. In Charlotte I did IT work for several Car Dealerships as well as some web and software development for a few small start-up ventures.

In 2006, I moved to Columbia SC were I begain working for the Institute of Strategic Languages and Cultures as a web-developer.

I work in PHP, Ruby on Rails, Ajax/JavaScript, Python and Clojure. I develop on Debian.

Over the years, I have worked for several start ups, including Lead Programmer for Leveraged Media, a Tech Company disguised as a Marketing Company disguised as a Tech company.

I am also proficient in C/C++ and know my way around Java and the other C Families (C#, Objective C)

I am currently freelancing as a Consultant here in Columbia, SC.  I focus on building software infrastructures for start-ups, using FOSS in Health Care and teaching and training on FOSS.

I also do some dabbling in social media integration.

My wife and I have been using this location for years. Tal and his staff always do an excellent job!! I have NEVER been told I needed repairs when I didn't need it. My wife drives a Nissan Versa, and they preform all the required factory recommended services well. I drive an Audi. Despite it being a German Import, they have staff that has knowledge of the German vehicles and most of the time they are able to take care of any issues. The one time that they couldn't fix something, they didn't even charge me a diagnostics fee! I recommend this crew highly and I will continue to bring my vehicles to them to service and repair.
