Skating After 40
Dropping in when you're already over the hill.
One of the many bowls at Lake Cunningham, San Jose.
“At San Jose's Lake Cunningham Skate Park parking is six bucks, plus a day use fee of ten bucks and you're required to where pads. As an over forty guy with a family, I love it. Don't get me wrong, I love free parks as well, but Lake Cunningham is big, full of families and skaters of all ages, abilities and types. It's a safe place to learn and mostly friendly place to progress.”Lake Cunningham, San JoseMini Review
Resting on the tube, Lake Cunningham, San Jose.
“The tube at Lake Cunningham is an impressive feature. The role-in is gentle but long enough that speed becomes an issue for more timid skaters. As you exit the other side, two step-ups slow your speed but not enough to make dealing with the bowl on the far end trivial.”The Tube at Lake CunninghamFaster than it looks.

Video Game Art
I’ve been fascinated with the art and technology of video games since I was seven years old. It started with a mechanical light and sound game I was given as a get well present when I broke my arm trying to fly. As I lay in my hospital bed I playing this pre-video game I wondered who drew the art, who got to decide what the car and trees looked like and, most importantly, how did it know when I’d crashed.
I started making game myself about a decade later. I cut my teeth with flash and the action script programming language before moving to Obective-C for the iPhone and finally C-Sharp with the Unity Game Engine.
