I have been blogging since the late 90s. At the time, I specialized in writing reviews ... books, plays, shows, places, food, etc.
I have been in the IT industry for longer than that and dipped my toes into developing websites professionally at about the same time, as this was when I co-owned a web development company. I am also an educator and teach in college/university and senior high school.
As a child, I have always loved to tinker in the kitchen and this led to my eventually being in charge of our evening meals where I challenged myself to come up with nutritious and delicious food for my family.
