I have been a software developer for 25 years, but mostly in management and implementation/business process consulting these days. I do a lot of high level design work and love to drive the construction of full applications that real people actually use.

Lately, I have been doing a lot of web-UI mock-ups using Jquery and Javascript. It's very satisfying to see things come alive almost immediately.

My latest project is an Human Resources organization chart that is 90% client-side driven using JQuery and JavaScript. You can see it live at

I have been using stackoverflow as my #1 place to get technical answers. The format is terrific.
