Mandatory::Introduction

I started out as a Java programmer, teaching myself the language while working as a TA at my college

I thought I was going to be a Java programmer when I graduated. Then I realized that for some reason I couldn't get a job as a Java programmer, because I couldn't find any entry level openings. ... and this was in 1999. Go figure.

Then after a series of what can only be described as disasters, I ended up in the Sillicon Valley, and I was fortunate enough to have an acquaintance at a very nice company, which is where I'm still employed.

But while I was eager to put my Java skills to work, my then-hiring manager plainly told me at my interview:

"You know we could give a flying fsck about Object Orinted programming, right?"

... So *that* and the fact that we used Perl at the side project that I had just joined, I turned into a Perl programmer. The rest is history

In 2004, I for some reason decided I should live in Japan, expatriate. Whatever. It's been kind of weird.

Been::There

Lived in: Japan, Brasil ( with an 's' ), Portugal, USA ( /Mid?West/ ). However, I'm now heading back to Japan, which I've almost never lived, and certainly never since my adulthood. We'll see what's there.
