Computers

I have been using computers for 15 years and programming for 12+ years. I started programming in QBasic, but moved to C and C++ after a time. Now, I have progress much farther. See below and my programming page.

I can program very comfortably in the following languages:

  • C/C++ (and I do try to make everything object-oriented when using C++)
  • Perl
  • Python
  • PHP
  • Bourne Shell
  • ECMAScript (a.k.a. JavaScript)
  • Nemerle
  • Medialon (a show control programming environment used in theatre and interactive displays)

I have some small experience in the following languages:

  • Java
  • C#
  • Max/MSP
  • XSLT (The XML transform language)
  • Lisp
  • Haskell

I have had a patch I wrote accepted to the Linux kernel. OK, it was a one character typo, but I still have a patch in the kernel.

Theatre

I have been doing theatre since I was 11 or so. So, I have some 12 years general experience dealing with theatre and theatre people. I have been doing technical theatre for about 10 years. In the beginning I was merely another pair of hand on the set crew, but by junior year in high-school I was the head of set construction. By my senior year I was one of the most knowledgeable people in the school on the subjects of lighting, sound and set, and was in a crew head or higher for almost all the shows.
