About Me.

I am a husband, corgi dad, software engineer, and an artist. I'm also a DJ from time to time. I have been doing some form of web development since 2004. In that time I have won awards for graphic and web design, been granted a patent for work on a 3D geo-spatial visualization systems, worked with top travel & tourism brands, higher education, health & wellness, and worked with cannabis startups. I have done backend programming, frontend programming, systems administration, dev+ops. I lead the local Linux users group for a time. I have always had a passion for the Internet and consider it to be one of mans greatest evolutions, even though the growing pains around it are quite painful, ultimately I am optimistic.

My calling in the web space is around the processes for making software manufacturing better. I love DevOps. It encompasses all of the little geeky things I find joy in such as project management, process development, automation, cloud engineering, docker, programming, and working with people to make cool shit.

My passion is in the arts. I am re-learning how to be an artist. Currently I am eating humble pie and learning some fundamentals so that I can realize my artistic vision. It's quite fun but also is also quite challenging. Photography is also something I enjoy quite a bit! I like bad or imperfect photos. Flaws in photographs are the most interesting thing to me.
