My style of development tends towards agile software development, which for the client means speedy results, short feedback cycles with the possibility of evaluation and course corrections, as well as a finished product with good test coverage. My focus on script programming helps me to easily take on and extract information from existing ad hoc data models.

I'm one of the active developers on the Perl 6 projects, and participate in compiler construction, language specification, and community operation.
