I've been a huge fan of Smalltalk since 1981, when I bought the famous August language issue of Byte devoted to Smalltalk. Since then, I have built applications in V/DOS, V/286, V/Win before switching to VisualWorks 1.0. Now mostly using VisualWorks 3.1, and rooting for Squeak to evolve into a powerful system as well.

My professional Smalltalk career includes a stint with a large insurance company and my former job as a research programmer for a university lab developing community based information systems. My current work is for a food-processing equipment manufacturer whose flagship product is developed in VW Smalltalk.

My most recent Squeak-related project is Oasis a fairly broad project in which I am trying to tackle many of the problems that I have run into over the years of working with various Smalltalk development environments.
