I am a US citizen currently on sabbatical in Asia (Cebu, Philippines this month). Last year I was teaching math & physics at a private secondary school in China. I've spent 15 - 20 years in IT, 10+ years running a large Direct Marketing company, 10+ years in education & training, & untold hours as an occasionally-paid, part-time pastor. Teaching physics got me interested in octave & Big Data; so, naturally, I'm pursuing scala, oz, Nosql, and jBehave. I've invented a few items of note & have actually made a dollar or two off some. Last US residence was outside Houston, but may return to the Pacific Northwest.
