I am a bureaucrat by profession; a husband and a parent through a serendipitous sequence of events; an amateur digital craftsman out of necessity with volatile interest in web development, programming, and graphic design; a compulsive reader; and, an insatiable learner drawn to the mysteries of the world.
The fact that you have landed on this page shows our paths in the journey of life, no matter where we started from, have crossed.
