I am a software developer. My work involves a great deal of communication, much of it in writing. Sometimes it takes a lot of time and effort to get the message just right. I started this blog to practice my writing. I hope to evolve a fluid, consistent process for expressing my thoughts. This page has been made public as I hope a genuine audience, however small, may help me achieve that goal. I will do my best to return the favor in the most appropriate currency: interesting and maybe even useful prose.
