I am a computer programmer/DBA working in Silicon Valley on large internationalized and high-scale Internet sites (Yahoo!, eBay, Netflix, Apple, etc.) Usually I code in Perl, PHP, AJAX and C/C++ on Unix (Linux, FreeBSD and Solaris).
I am also an asst. karate instructor, commercially-rated airplane pilot, and enjoy weightlifting, cycling and studying languages (Indonesian, French and Japanese). See my blog for more.
I'm always interested in technically interesting employment opportunities. I would prefer full-time in the Bay Area, but will do part-time Perl/C programming contracts at $120/hour W2. (A link to my resume in Word format is at the bottom of this page.) I am a Perl database programmer, not a computer scientist. Please don't ask me to develop graph theory algorithms.
I am a member of several software user groups in Silicon Valley, including being the co-founder and past organizer of the Silicon Valley Perl Mongers, and a member of SVLUG and IMUG.
I enjoy visiting other countries and learning new cultures. Some of the places I have worked in or visited include: USA, Canada, Tijuana, Amsterdam, Paris, Venice, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Western Thailand, Tokyo, Osaka, New Zealand.
