I think SpecializationIsForInsects
, so I like to do a lot of different things. Most of them are outside (sailing, canoeing, skiing) but I also try (and usually, it must be admitted, fail) to take advantage of the myriad cultural opportunities in BostonCity?

Oh yeah, I also love to write software. When it comes to that I'm interested in DesignPatterns
, and anything else that might help with the unsolved problem that is developing large and complex software systems. Programming has had me hooked since I first played with BASIC on the AppleIi

The more software I develop the more I see people and their relationships as the things that really make a difference.
I'm Australian by birth, went to High School in Hawai'i, and went to university in Boston, so don't ask me where I'm "from" ;)
