Welcome to my personal page which will eventually host my online portfolio and blog. Until then, check out the links below. At work we need to ensure everything we do plays nicely with Internet Explorer 6. Here.. not so much. Please make sure you are running a modern browser, preferably Chrome or FireFox.

About

Thought Stuff

Software influences much of our modern world, despite being little more than "thought-stuff":

The programmer, like the poet, works only slightly removed from pure thought-stuff. He builds his castles in the air, from air, creating by exertion of the imagination. Few media of creation are so flexible, so easy to polish and rework, so readily capable of realizing grand conceptual structures.

The Mythical Man Month by Frederic P. Brooks

By learning new ideas, methodologies and tools, a designer gains new instruments which can be used to sculpt grand castles in what is little more than an imaginary sandbox.

A little bit on me
