I'm a developer from Takoma Park, MD.

At the office, I work on MSSQL, C#, VB.NET, Javascript, ASP.NET.

At home, I'm a vegan, a sci-fi fan, dabble in foreign languages and enjoy book clubs.

I will try to up vote everyone who answers me and I thank everyone who has freely given me some of their time to answer my various questions.
