I'm a big fan of regex; one of the most under-used and mis-used tools programmers have.

I blog about programming and web development topics at Sorcerer's Tower.

I'm a digital artist, creating images from photos and 3D renders.

I'm passionate about freedom, in all forms.

CFML is a flexible and easy to use programming language, generally used for web development, but capable of any general purpose task.

(Buzzword time: CFML is a dynamic multi-paradigm RAD server-side scripting language with two fully-featured and interchangable syntaxes, and makes it trivial to use multiple domain-specific languages to solve specific problems.)

CFML began as the language powering Adobe* ColdFusion (*originally Allaire), but has evolved beyond these boundaries. There are now multiple CFML engines available, including the excellent Railo.
