 Professional Details 
I develop n-tier application architectures for distributed programs. See my resume for a detailed summary of my background.

The development process should foster predictable, repeatable success. Toward that end, here are some suggestions and resources for best practices

 Personal Miscellania

 Old friends  See the Fairmont East High School page for news about FEHS (Kettering, OH), especially the class of 1975.

 Pets  One cat, and two dogs (a Labrador retriever and a golden retriever from the Golden Endings rescue organization).

 Transportation  A Honda Nighthawk 750 motorcycle. I'm shopping for a sport-tourer.

 Reading  My tastes tend toward fantasy & science fiction. My favorite authors tend to play with the notion that "reality" isn't necessarily an absolute, fixed concept.

 Interesting People I Know

Bob Culver and Joan DiSimone of Sun Dance Creations make beautiful handcrafted wildlife jewelry.

Robyn Milligan is a singer/songwriter in Dayton, OH.

Perhaps best known for his "ex-lawyer" stand-up comedy, Jack Thomas and I were on the Ohio University speech team together.

Before she gave voice to Bart Simpson, I met Nancy Cartwright via high school forensics. Our high schools were cross-town rivals, but we both attended OU.

 Special Interests

 Music  I've been playing single-reed woodwinds (mostly Bb clarinet and alto saxophone) since I was in 4th grade, but guitar is my primary instrument. You can hear me play on Robyn Milligan's new album, "Feels Like I'm Dreaming". Watch for performances by my band, Soul Club 75!
