Yep, in my first classes I used physical card readers to run my programs. I still do mainframe programming in my "day job."

I believe in the power of music. And squirrels. But mostly music.

It's long since time for me to develop this website into something functional. Most of this will focus on my outside musical exploits, but I like this template so here it is.

Soon this site will actually do things and stuff, but I want to make sure the page is up and mildly functional. This page is under development and elements will change.
