I have been working with computers since my father bought me a Commodore 64 to play with many years ago. Since then, I have worked with a variety of technologies including C++, C, web services, message queues, XML, Oracle, Unix, NT, Apache, and IIS, to name a few.
Also, I have had the good fortune to see the application of these technologies in a variety of areas including GIS, C3I, telephony, financial, and printing (large and small format).
I am co-author of the book Professional XML Web Services and have had a patent approved.
I live in Arvada Colorado with my wife and am wrapped around the fingers of our 3 daughters.
