Writing software is my passion. I do it for money and I do it for free. I've worked on a great variety of things, from Smalltalk, to the Macintosh Sound Manager, to cell phone browsers, and virtual worlds. I'm currently working at Google.
I have become a strong proponent of functional programming in general, and Haskell in particular. It is elegant and powerful, and a significant improvement to software productivity. Over the last few years I have been deeply involved with the Haskell community both organizing events, and as the release manager for Haskell Platform.
In the past, I: Studied electronic music and computer science in college; Worked at Apple for many years (first on Smalltalk, then Sound research); Ran a software consulting business for even longer; Did a lot of rock climbing; And was a stay-at-home-dad for three years.
For everything else there's Google.
