the last decade has had me chasing dollars and building software for the web. with the new year approaching, I am finally ready to lay it down, say no to new clients, diving deep, and exploring new areas where my skills can have a greater impact. electronics design, low-level software, and art practices interest me most right now. I have finally learned to separate "me, the freelancer looking for work online" from "me, the human being," which facilitated the creation of this site.
