Professional geek & Java/iPhone/iPad coder - interested in science,
micro-isvs, startups, web tech, eBay, computer/board games, my wife
& kids, reading scifi/fantasy, philosophy & Jesus
That's the short twitter version. Here's the long one:
I'm a Java contractor by day, having worked at a bunch of places in Sydney - eg Tourism Australia, Macquarie Bank, Trading Post, Zurich and currently Transport NSW.
In my spare time I've done various projects. For example
I'm currently at work on an iPad app which should be coming out any day now. It's an app to help procrastinators - yes, I am using the app to help write the app.
I have a wife and 3 kids who are a constant joy.
I grew up mucking around on Apple 2 computers, playing Wizardry and hacking out Basic apps that I'd probably be totally embarrassed about now - I didn't even know it was called bubble sort...
I've always been interested in science and astronomy. Some of the most interesting classes at uni were in the school of history and philosophy of science.
I read a lot of science fiction and fantasy and wish I could read faster. Yes, I played D&D when I was younger. The only reason I don't play it now is due to lack of time.
I enjoy board games - ie german/euro/designer board games like Puerto Rico.
I'm a Christian and if you want a good book explaining why, I can recommend Tim Keller's The Reason for God.
