Welcome to my personal web site. I have created this site to tell
people about my personal and professional interests as well as a place where
people can go to communicate with me. It also provides me with some opportunity
to practice XHTML and PHP development on a live web site. This site is always
under construction and I will be updating it fairly frequently so please check
At the top of the page you will see a menu that you can use to navigate to
some of the other features of my site. If you want to send me an email you can
use the contact link which will send you to
a form page you can use to write your email. You can use the
blog link if you would like to read
I have been working as a software engineer for more than ten years in the
areas of Windows programming, medical devices, and industrial control. My favorite
programming language is C++ but I have used a number of other ones over the years
including PHP which I am using on this web site. As I get things more organized I
will be adding links and downloads of examples of my work so that you can get a
real idea of some of the things I can do.
Here is a list of some of the things I am interested in, with links to pages giving
more about them:
I'm also using this site as a platform for my experiments in web technologies and
on occasions when I have something of that nature that I feel is ready to be seen
in public I will provide a link to it. And once I have something to the point where it is
working well and I like it I will move it to my other more commercial web sites. I will be
working with a combination of applications available from my web hosting provider as well
as code that I have written myself.
I have a number of Internet Domains besides this one which I use for various different
purposes, some experimental and some commercial. I've been on the internet in some way pretty
much since the time when it was released for private and commercial use. I still remember going
to see a demo of the first web browser program before most people knew there was such a thing.
I served six years in the United States Navy as an electronics technician working on radio,
radar, and computer equipment. I entered the Navy in their advanced electronics program where
you go to school for two years and then serve in the fleet for four years. Since I had 3 years of
Marine Corps JROTC
in high school it was easy to make the transition into the real military, even though I enlisted when I was 17.
I am also interested in languages and linguistics and I spend some of my time working to
learn more about languages that interest me. In addition there are several aspects of linguistics
that interest me, such as the way humans respond to sounds and the relationship of different
languages to each other. In fact it is the interrelationship between different languages that
make it easier for me to learn a new language.
I have started working on monetizing this site both for learning as well as perhaps earning a
bit to help pay the expenses. I've joined Amazon Associates and you will see a variety of ads and
links around the site associated with this. I've chosen Amazon for this because I already have a
relationship with them - they're one of the distribution channels for my books. At least at first I
will try to set things up so that the ads are relavent to the subject of the page being displayed.
If you are considering buying something from Amazon please consider doing so via my site. You
will be helping me and I am pretty sure you won't be paying any more than you otherwise would on
Amazon. If I don't have the specific product you are interested in specifically advertised here
then please just click the banner above. I will be adding more as I go along but the banners will
be the default.
I have Wordpress installed on this site and I am providing a link to
it for the first time. It's a toy that I haven't used before so I am still learning and getting
used to how everything works over there. I'm used to doing everything on my web sites manually so
the Wordpress site will be a chance for me to explore doing it with a high level application instead.
