I have been working in Java since the 1.1 days when you debugged in J++ and have been working on and off in C# for the past couple of years working with WPF recently.
I have written custom GUI controls in many languages: Borland C++, Delphi, MS C++, Java, C# WinForm and C# WPF.
At work my nickname GUI cop as I can look at a dialog box and tell you a button is off by one pixel. I don't like it when the interface does not look professional and consistent.
I push for warning free code and use tools such as Lint, PMD, Coverity and FindBugs to ensure that extra mile of code cleanliness.
I have also worked with internationalization in C++, Java and C#. I don't read / write or speak other languages but I have helped internationalize the software so others can localize it. This include displaying news stories in Japanese, Spanish, German, French and Chinese. My current Java project has been localized in Spanish, German and French. The next version will also support Dutch.
I enjoy cooking especially grilling. I will grill no matter the weather, I have been out on the deck in 15 degree weather, snow, rain and the super hot we get in Kansas.
When it comes to computer games I like a solid RPG or FPS but will play the casual match 3 games from time to time when I don't want to tax my brain or reflexes. I enjoy crossword puzzles and subscribe to Games magazine where I will try about anything the throw at you.
