I have been bouncing around the J community (mostly on the forums) since J 501. My background in programming goes back to a Computing Science BSc that I received in the mid '80s. At that point the goal was simply completion of a degree and I quickly moved on into television production, which at that time was my passion. Years later, after family and other considerations, I stepped back from television and moved into education with an Master of Arts in Learning and Technology in 2008.
J has been an invigorating game to keep my mathematical and programming skills almost sharp. My media and education background has me always looking for ways to contribute.
Some animations that I have done for NuVoc are evidence of this. eg.http://www.jsoftware.com/jwiki/Vocabulary/plus/Animations .
I also have a blog where I have posted a variety of ideas to the way I approach J with respect to visualization.
