This page has slowly been getting longer. Kind of like boiling a frog in water, I didn't notice it until it was a mess. I reorganized and it looks more like a CV now, but at least it is easy to read. While I work as a Java Developer for a bank in New York City, the interesting parts are what I do outside of work.
