About me

Gender MALE
Industry Technology
Occupation software developer
Location Leesburg, Virginia, United States
Introduction I live with my long-suffering, sainted wife Jennifer, without whom I'd be hopelessly lost, instead of just lost, and four children, Ian, Simon, Francine and Jeremy who challenge, enlighten, amaze, inspire and irritate me on a daily basis. I'm a long-time software developer and have worked in many industries in the past 20 years. I also teach CCD at St. John the Apostle Catholic Church because time spent with children is never wasted. These opinions are solely my own and do not reflect those of my employers, past or present, the Government, the Church or the effects of CIA mind-control lasers. Not that anyone would want them.

If you were a wrestler, what would be your finishing move?

A devastating application of modus tollens, which having completely and thoroughly humiliated my opponent by pointing out the logical flaws in his trash talk, causes him to forfeit the match in order to spend the weekend reading George Boole.
