I work as a professional Lisp and Python developer and recently founded my own contract development studio; I began programming as a child in Basic and TurboPascal, primarily to create my own games in the spirit of classic text adventures and my favourite Sierra titles. I first discovered Lisp when I was 9 years old, when I happened across a new copy of The Little LISPer at the public library.
Over the past two decades, I’ve kept up with emerging web and desktop technologies and expanded further into os x and mobile development, among other things. In short, computers are my life. I have a particular penchant for Common Lisp, but I make it my business to learn and use as many programming languages as I can fathom.
Technology excites me, and the next decade will prove to be an especially exciting one. With the continuing improvements being made to quantum computers, machine-learning algorithms, artificial intelligence, natural speech recognition, thought-controlled computing, robotics, and space-tech, it’s hard to know what to focus on, and even harder to predict what the future might be like. I intend to be there every step of the way, chronicling everything I find, and contributing everything I can.
