I also code

My name is Med and I write software. As I meandered drunkenly towards my current career as a programmer, I studied as a musician while paying my way as a guitar tutor. I have trained in and taught Aikido for over twenty years and had to study my butt off in maths to switch careers in my thirties.

In doing these things I found it useful to build tools and make videos which I thought they could be useful to others. While the video and tutorial sections of the site are currently being rebuilt, I am particularly proud of "dojoDesk" which is my main project at the moment. check it out

I sometimes write about stuff and aikido
