I am a longtime Mathematica user and readily acknowledge Mathematica's role in positively shaping my career. I am fortunate in having known individuals with varied interests who in turn encouraged me to develop varied interests, astronomy to zoology. I have spent more than a decade or two accumulating expertise in scientific programming, algorithm development and teaching. Although frequently called upon to work on complex algorithms, I believe in the value of keeping it basic, and the universal customer need for intuitiveness and simplicity in a product.

The graphics in the tutorial A Gentle Introduction to Backpropagation were created using Mathematica.
