About Me

I was born in Kansas, but grew up in California.  I attended San Jose State University where I graduated with a BS in General Engineering, minor in mathematics.


My first job out of college was developing games for Atari.  Such a fun job.

More on my videogames here

 

After videogames I joined West Valley Construction as a software developer and IT manager.  There I was involved in IT, web development, database design, and much more.  Also a fun job.

I'm now retired and living in northern California

 

 

My projects...


My first website is a photographic tribute to a famous San Francisco landmark, the Cliff House.  It's a nice place to get lost if you're the nostalgic sort...

My vision of transportation...

Sometimes you need evolution, sometimes you need revolution.
This is my proposal for the latter.

 


Expertvoter.org was a simple grid full of youtube videos, the candidates names on the top, the issues on the left.

I created this because I see my country headed in too many wrong directions.  And it won't turn around until we drop the bias against candidates not wearing elephant or donkey buttons.

This illustrates an important principle of democracy - it's not a guarantee of wise governance, only of the potential for it.
 

 

And my true love, gardening...
