About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To develop beautiful and valuable webapps!

ABOUT ME

I am a Generalist Web Developer and Standardista. For the most part I am a systems thinker who is capable of applying dialectic and scientific methods to UI/UX problems, and I have a strong interest in the development and implementation of hypermedia designs and applications.

I enjoy the physical activity of writing code, the feeling of my hands as bit wizards; perhaps what Brian Cantwell Smith contrives "semiotic alchemy." I want to find others who share such now-not-so-crazy ideas. In short —

Education, Search, Hypermedia, W3C Standards, Accessibility, Infosthetics.

PHILOSOPHY

I am a practicing psychonaut. I have employed LSD, magic mushrooms (psilocybin), methylone, and magnetic fields to successfully enhance various aspects of my cognition, affection, and audition systems; and bootstrap various deficiencies due to Williams Syndrome of my neuroconstitution and electro-cardiovascular system.

I studied logic under Dr. James Garson, and learned epistemology from Dr. Bredo Johnsen.

I am also a Spinozist when it comes to metaphysics, pataphysics; and a Wittgensteinian.
