Over the last 30+ years I have created and shared many tools and libraries that you may use daily, such as CUPS, Gutenprint, HTMLDOC, and Mini-XML. I have also contributed to many other open source projects (cups-filters, FLTK, Ghostscript, Samba) and written or contributed to many of the standards used for printing and the web today.

I love to develop easy-to-use and well-documented open source solutions in a variety of areas and I'm looking to sponsors to help fund my development time and focus my efforts where they are most needed.
