Hi, my name is Fire Crow and this is my website.

I'm a computer programmer and game/web developer. My focus is on reusable code bases, flexible systems, components/composition, function pointers, state-machines, algorithms, etc.

My Professional experience is in JavaScript web development. Things I tinker with include C/OpenGL 3D game engine development, chaining/function-dispatching, and graph/set theory based systems in C and Scheme.

why python self?
To me this is wonderful. Not because I enjoy seeing self all over the place. Its wonderful because when I think of how computer programs work, it just makes sense. I also think it's important to meet computers where they are, to leverage their full power.
