I am a software programmer. I have been for the past fifteen years. I also write: fiction, essays, tweets and a lot of ramblings. I'm not sure I'm any good. I don't know---yet---if you would want to spend hours and days reading a book I've written. So, while I am still unsure what this site is all about, for now it's just a reflection of the things I think; about software and gated communities; about writing fiction and learning to share it; about the bear that perpetually roams inside my soul, sometimes dormant, most time ravenously hungry. I write for me, to figure things out, and perhaps I'll learn something from having my thoughts in one place.
