My Perl interests include solving the GoF patterns problems in uniquely Perlish ways. I've written a book about that.
Once upon a time I taught college math. More recently I was programming mod_perl and other Perl apps for Sunflower Broadband a Cable/Internet/Phone provider in Lawrence, KS. Now I work for a small custom software, hardware, and support shop called da Vinci Network Services in Oklahoma City. I'm coding server side perl and client side Java (for ease of deployment to desktop PCs).
While at Sunflower I helped write gantry and its code regeneration framework Bigtop. I wrote a book about them too.
