            I'm an extremely passionate, driven developer. I guess you'd say I'm a generalist of sorts; I love learning
            new languages, new techniques, and expanding my horizons. I'm most comfortable in Ruby, but program
            regularly in PHP, Python, and Common Lisp. I think each language has its own pros, cons, strengths and
            quirks. I'm not afraid to wear many hats; I've done my share of server administration, software
            integration, and database tuning.

            My goal is to be learning constantly and to be continuously challenged as a developer.
