Hello World

Sometimes, I find myself feeling spread thin across the internet. There are the websites I maintain and the blogs that I publish content to. There are also the unintelligible comments I tend to leave scattered around.

Consider this an attempt to gather all of the pieces. Perhaps it will help to paint a better picture of who I am. My resume is available if you are interested. However, I can guarantee that it will already be out of date by the time you read it. Contact me directly for current information.
