Check out [login to view URL] to see some of my most recent open source releases (especially of Approach, my open source platform ) Most of my career I worked for organizations ranging from Texas A&M to IBM as clients of Flip Side Technologies.

Approach is a life-oriented, organic architecture for software. Approach has been made with the helpful review of many passing developers who had worked with me on partnership projects with over 50 different companies and non-profits. Due to constant contributions from FlipSide Technologies, or my personal involvement, some developers freely contributed to a past proprietary version of Approach.
