Hello, and thanks for taking a minute to check out my corner of the interwebs. I was born in Virginia and currently reside in south Florida, USA. I've been writing software (more or less) since I was about 7, starting with QBASIC. I've written a far more detailed post about my history here.
Be sure to check out my projects page as well.
This website has been through several revisions, and this is version 4.
Those of you who have hit this site over the last few years may have noticed several iterations, some of which were far more fancy and complex than this one. Why so simple, you ask? Frankly, those complex iterations required a lot of maintenance on the back end, especially since the last one was a proprietary one. It was nice to use, but ultimately had to be let go due to speed reasons. Simply put, every low-cost hosting solution I've ever used has really slow databases, which all of this fanciness requires.
This iteration is designed to be fast. That is, no database, no fancy connections to my twitter, and no abundant amounts of calls to various APIs - all of which slow down page load times considerably. I'm going old-school here, and personally I love it. Sometimes simple is best.
