Hello, I’m Clinton Jeff

 

I am driven by my ever-growing interest in internet memes, but mostly I’m all about technology!
I like long walks, taking my car out on long rides, taking pictures with his camera-phone and ‘opening things’ to improve them.

It’s a bit hard to explain what I do, but here’s a bit about what I’ve done so far.
