Bio

Everyone should know how to make their computer dance! Samba, tango, waltz... doesn't matter which flavor you prefer, I can help you turn your machine into a whirling dervish of productivity. I've been doing just that for more than twenty of your Earth years... longer, if you count all the childhood learning-by-doing that I did.

Everyone should know how to make their computer dance! Samba, tango, waltz... doesn't matter which flavor you prefer, I can help you turn your machine into a whirling dervish of productivity. I've been doing just that for more than twenty of your Earth years... longer, if you count all the childhood learning-by-doing that I did.

Whether you want to learn some simple administrative tricks or gaming optimizations; web design or home automation; or how to write software and contribute to open source, I can help.

I'm a professional software architect these days, but I've been SO many things. I have twenty professional years (and another decade of hobby/contractor work) in the IT/software field, and a great passion for spreading the joy it's brought me.

What I'm looking for in students are folk who want "quick wins" that they can take into their daily lives. I want to improve my ability to teach those skills rapidly, clearly, and with a "flourish." Thanks for taking the time to look into my service, and good fortune to you, regardless, fellow traveler!
