Awesome!
 
I'm not gonna lie -- there have been a lot of great Batmans, but Bruce Timm's is my favorite. That he's done a 'classic' short for the 75th anniversary reminds me of just how gorgeous his vision is.

Story
Tagline
Entrepreneur, Software Engineer and Geek
Introduction

I am a software engineer, author, teacher and entrepreneur.

From the hardcore server-side and database challenges to the the front end issues, I love solving problems and strive to create software that can make a difference.

I'm an author published by Manning (at age 17) and O'Reilly and have also appeared in leading publications with my articles on ColdFusion and Flex.

I teach Android development at the Rich Media Institute (downtown Toronto), as well as give presentations at FITC, Riadventure and other conferences on Android, ColdFusion and various other topics. Previously I served as the CTO for MatchFuel and its predecessor AndSpot.

Currently, I am the founder of Dynamatik, a design and development consulting agency.

I am also a Software Engineer working at Kobo on the Android tablet team.
