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

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 programming was considered a computer nerd or techie.

My first serious scripting experience was with HyperCard and HyperTalk. 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, along with AppleScript and blogging. Since around the fall of 1997, I have been writing databases with FileMaker. In addition to writing FileMaker solutions, I am also currently developing GUI scripts, learning UNIX, and shell scripts for AppleScript and for use in Terminal.

I am 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.
