Please take a minute to introduce yourself...

How did you start writing/programming for the web?
What kind of web-related projects do you work on?
Do you have any other interests?

[Information about web companies should be posted elsewhere; this thread is for people to introduce themselves.]

I come from a printing and publishing background, and began working on websites for print customers looking to "repurpose" their content. I now work for local government, where about a third of my time is spent on municipal web sites. My interest in web accessibility predates my current job, but the knowledge I've gained has proven valuable in it. Boating and gardening are among my other interests.
