I grew up in a small town in Southwest Virginia. I attended the College of William of Mary in Williamsburg, VA, and earned a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science. After I graduated, I moved to Northern Virginia for a job as a technical consultant (developer). I am currently located in the Raleigh-Durham area in North Carolina.
I am a big advocate of free and open source software, because I believe software efforts should benefit the greater good — and not just individual persons or companies. I believe open source is the smarter way to build software.
