Married my wife, Angie, on March 20, 2002. We moved to Savage, Minnesota in 2004 and recently relocated in Bloomington, MN this past Spring. We have one daughter, Grace Kelly (8) and two dogs, Charlie and Trixie. My wife and I enjoy both cooking and traveling. Our favorite place to go is Las Vegas. We don't gamble, but we do enjoy the food, the shows, the weather (in winter), and the people watching. When I am not in the kitchen or on the road, you can find me on my computer. My favorite game is Command & Conquer, but I am well versed at Quake, Duke Nukem, Castle Wolfenstein, and more.
We're rebels. We're misfits. But mostly, we're software liberators. And we're very, very good at what we do. We have to be. Lots of developers work with open source, but only a tiny fraction of those are good enough to get software that was designed for one platform to work on another one. We invented CrossOver software - a unique approach to cross-platform compatibility that does not require dual-boot or another OS license. We launched PortJump to help app and game developers broaden their market beyond Windows® users. And we launched ExecMode to help organizations solve really ugly technical challenges.
