Finally got my act together and launched this, months later.

Open web cheerleader.
Introduction
I tend to do anything as long as it feels like an adventure, and to stop when it feels like work.

I have a mild Peter Pan obsession, a fascination with saying the wrong thing at precisely the wrong time, and a carefully guarded idealism that I generally fail at keeping the world from crushing. You jerks.

I'm a software engineer because I think it's neat that I can make computers do things using my words. I'm a writer and a speaker because I think it's neat that I can make people do things using my words.
Bragging rights
Once, Regina George punched me in the face. It was awesome.
