I am a photographer at heart and a programmer by profession.
I have a diploma in Computer Programming and an Honours diploma in Photography.
I am a 2nd degree black belt in Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu Iaido (way of drawing the sword) and a 2nd Kyu in Aikido.
- photography (emphasis on landscapes and nature, but I enjoy most types)
- games (computer, role-playing)
- security, cryptography
- web design, usability, UI
- Linux, Java, programming
