Most days, David R. Michael (AKA, “me”) is a software developer and a writer. Some days, he’s a writer and a software developer. Other days, he’s an amateur photographer, and there are still other days when he fancies himself a cook. Because, really, who is the same person every day?
David is the designer and developer of The Journal, personal journaling software for Windows. He has also designed and developed video games, and has written two nonfiction books and numerous articles about video game development.
David lives with his wife, kids and cats in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
