# Not just a programmer

Hi there,

My name is Joe, and I'm more than a programmer. I also go by Joseph. The rules for when I go by one or the other are pretty arbitrary. I kinda like it that way.

I like programming a lot. It's fun sometimes, challenging always, and it provides a pretty good living for myself and my family.

I've been through a lot in my life. I guess everyone has. Birth is pretty traumatic.

If you by chance come across this page and read these words, you may be the only one ever to do so. Maybe you'll feel a fleeting blip of a connection between us, knowing that in this moment you know that I know you're here.

I say I too much for my own good sometimes.

But I guess there is a lot to me, and I guess I do like exploring the facets of myself. There is a lot to everyone.
