I graduated from art school with a BFA in 2004. Around the time that I
graduated I tripped across PHP and the open-source paradigm.
I was hooked. I was so enamored by the social utility of the
open-source process that it made my head spin.
I wanted to contribute, so I created my first icon set for KDE
in 2003. I got a job in support that offered free training in
virtually any technology and took over 400 credit hours of training
in technology ranging from programming languages, encryption, server
technologies, and applications. I took the job mostly for this
training benefit, alone.
Over the course of the last 10 years I have been involved in
open-source software continually, and have been involved in more
than 60 projects as of the time of this writing.
