My name is John McAvey and I have been involved in Information Technology and Computer Science for the bulk of my life. My interests in biology and computer science have provided me the oppertunity to continually grow as a life-long learner. My work as an IT infrastructure techinitian has given me insight into how technology is being employed to revolutionize the workplace as well as how to quickly and effectively create minimalist functional environments. This experience has helped me to develop intuitive user interfaces for applications I design. In addition to my work and school, I enjoy physical activites such as basketball, and historical martial arts such as german longsword.
