About / Contact

This is a sister site of and I can be reached via email or alternatively using the details found here.

I'm also on Twitter for those into that sort of thing though the blog is the best place to keep up-to-date on things from me.

With over 13 years experience with Winamp plug-ins as well as having worked on Winamp natively on/off since 2007 until the last AOL release, I'm now back to being a 3rd party developer (coding without the corporate BS) and hope to do some of the things I used to do with Winamp to try to do something to keep it alive when it's new owners don't appear to care. I also worked on SHOUTcast since late 2010 until mid-September 2015.
