Welcome to my lair of inter-web despair. OK, it isn't really that bad.

Hello, my name is Jezra. I'm a software/web developer, musician, and all around general tinkerer living is golden California. As a knowledge seeker I like to spend my time in the persuit of:
  • software development
  • playing music
  • human locomotion
  • photography
  • competitive whisker growing
  • tinkering
  • some of this, some of that
and quite a few other things as well.

If you have a problem, and you can't get the A-Team, MacGyver, or the Ghostbusters, drop me a line, I might be able to help (credentials available upon request).

Here is my simple fix.

Someone once said that I was 'addicted to noise', while I don't necessarily agree with the 'noise' part, I certainly like to listen to music... all the time. With that in mind, you can understand my desire to have a sweet sweet music player in my workshop, and now I have one (sort of). Say hello to Bonechop!
