"Not your average geek"

Over the years I've worked on numerous projects, written some useful scripts and software and done quite a bit of research. Here's an opportunity to find out more about some of those projects and download copies of some. Note that not all of these projects remain under my control and others are still in development. If you're trying to figure out where you've heard of me or seen me it just might be from one of these. In the future I hope to provide more detailed information about these projects and will update the page to include new efforts so check back often. Of course if you'd like to help with any of the ongoing or in development projects please let me know.
