I am passionate about writing good software. Not just easy to use or pretty to look at; I also want the software I write to be looked at by my peers and liked for simplicity or elegance in it's source code form.

I don't like needlessly convoluted code or error prone habits when it comes to software. They are costly and usually avoidable. I'm looking for an environment where I can not only improve my code and my processes but where I have real input on the larger processes at play in my work.

I'm meticulous and deductive, I usually catch many edge cases well before they are a problem.
