I started my career in computing as a teenage geek and spent my free time after school hours mostly in front of my father's first big technology acquisition, a Commodore PET 2001 with a flimsy keyboard and data tape recorder.
Over the following years, I consistently failed to improve my social skills, but did step up significantly to mastering 6502 assembly programming on an Apple ][. This got me into university, where I started writing endless streams of code in archaic languages such as Pascal or Modula-2 on the first IBM PC with a big noisy 10MB hard drive. I soon got my hands on a copy of Microsoft XENIX System V, and that's when my UNIX experience started… back in 1985.
As an internet entrepreneur, I started my own business and wrote endless streams of code for UNIX platforms in the heyday of "Web 1.0". After surviving "Y2K" and realizing that my bank account was still around, I continued writing endless streams of code and building websites mainly for fun and philanthropic causes.
I'm also available as a developer, consultant, independent reviewer/tester, translator or project coordinator for individual projects. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss your specific needs.
