Not much of an artist, though I appreciate good art. Not Art With a Captial A, mind you. I like neat, clever, colorful, and interesting more than pretentious.
I'm an "instructional technologist" with a company that develops training for other companies. My main gig is making e-Learning courses talk properly to stubborn learning management systems. I dabble in a bit of everything. Or, as one of my old bosses said "Not a jack of all trades, more like a six or seven".
Personal heroes: Johann Sebastian Bach, Jeremy Clarkson, Alan Turing, Claude Ostyn, Richard Feynman, Marie Curie, Stephen Fry, Dara O'Brien and more. Anyone that bucks the trend and does what they do best, without letting it get to their head. (Maybe not so much true for Jeremy Clarkson, but I appreciate someone who doesn't let other people tell them what to think)
