Picture of me

This is the home page for Steven Reynolds. I am a software developer and manager living in Houston, TX. I currently work at INT, a small software company specializing in graphics libraries used throughout the Oil Industry.

My github account is stevenreyn. My main project there is RegionViewer. This project exports a graph of objects on the Java Virtual Machine to a graph file. Several graph file formats are supported. I have used this code for some of my talks/papers.
