This is a bruise on my flank from falling down the stairs. Long story……Well since you asked… I cleaned up my Foosball table today. Part of the maintenance process is lubricating the bars. For this, I spray dry silicone directly on them. I got tons of overspray on the floor and I was wearing thin, non-absorbing dress socks. So when you combine a sock-full of dry silicone, with running briskly down the stairs, you get a 190 lb bodyslam from 5 feet up. Good times.

In 2008 I started a software company called Urban Apps that has made some pretty popular apps such as Ambiance and Hourly News. My current Stack Overflow reputation is about 27k.
I was a Rockstar a decade ago, but then went back to school and collected a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science from U.C. Berkeley. Now I am settled down with my beautiful wife Di and our two doggies Hamachi and Foxy. While coding, I walk several miles/day on my Treadmill Desk. When not at my desk, I love exploring New York City as a Yelp Elite, or training for marathons.
