The roller coaster seems like fun
it's your turn and now your numb
but you failed to turn and run
because you're not the only one.
No rails lay underneath your feet
no straps to keep you in your seat
pull your hair and grind your teeth
every turn twists with defeat.
Fairytales are a big mistake
half you'll love and half you'll hate
you'll wake up in fear of fate
and go to hell for pity's sake.
All comes to pass when you decide
give up ignorance and foolish pride
let it go and put your hands up high
learn to laugh and enjoy the ride.
I started programming TI-BASIC in 1979 on a TI99-4A home computer|
and invested many years of my youth perfecting Chicago-area based BBS's
I am a freelance programmer, designer, and graphic artist.

I produce voice over materials for technical productions as well as character
materials for creative productions(video games/animation). I am part of the
Open Source Education Initiative (OSEI). I produce audio books and video

Software experience includes, but not limited to: Adobe, Final Cut Pro,
DVD Studio Pro, Blender, Painter X, Gimp, and damn near anything that
has been created to be creative. Linux command-line, Python, Java, CSS,
PHP, and AJAX. These are a few of my favorite things.
If it can go through a computer, I pwned it.
Don't ask me if I can do PowerPoint. I will bash you.
