I worked as a senior IC designer for years before deciding to change careers on September 11, 2001, on the day of the World Trade Center attacks. I'm now the lead programmer for xulsword, among other things. I became a computer programmer through following God's leading to make His Word available and understandable to people with few or no options. I have been dedicated to that effort since 2008. I love Open Source, being the miracle that it is, and am totally indebted for the opportunities it provides. I'm also grateful for The SWORD Project and to the many who have worked so hard building highways for God's Word. But the most important part of my biography is the love of the Lord Jesus, whose grace and power is the only source of life.
