Donald Fisk
An instance of the class Person.

I first learned Lisp in early 1982, when I bought Winston and Horn, 1st Edition. See Donald Fisk's Road to Lisp.

Since then, I've been programming commercially in Scheme, then Common Lisp, for a number of years.

My computing experience covers interpreters and compilers, Artificial Intelligence, Speech Processing, Telecommunications, document processing and a few other things. Mainly R&D and systems programming.

I have recently developed and released my own Lisp dialect and environment (Emblem), as the substrate of a completely new language system (Full Metal Jacket) which I am developing. I presented a paper on this at the International Lisp Conference 2003. It's not ready for release yet.

Most of my non-Lisping is in C. I also have significant experience in Bash, Prolog, Pascal, Java, and various assembly languages.
