Insanely obsessed with anything involving 'cracking the code', I am an AppleScript and Mac OS Afficionado. I have learned a lot, but have so much more I want to learn, so that others may benefit from my knowledge.

A 1988 graduate of The Ohio State University with a BA in Linguistics, I have travelled Europe extensively and have a good working knowledge of a number of European Languages.

Among my other pursuits are programming and scripting. My first programming experience was in MacPascal and TurboPascal back in the early 80's. At the time, there really was no such thing as scripting and anyone who knew anything about web pages was considered a techie.

My first serious programming experience was with HyperCard and HyperTalk and is the reason I am a die-hard Mac Fan. When AppleScript support came along in the late 80's, I started using it almost exclusively.

Around 1994 or so, I started learning HTML and JavaScript, which, along with AppleScript and blogging, keeps me busy most of the time.
