I'm a husband, father, hobbyist musician, and currently employed as a software engineer in a Devops role. I work with clients/employers to build custom solutions. I started out making web sites for small businesses, and gradually worked my way to developing API's, querying/designing databases, writing
angular, azure (ARM Templates, Azure powershell, portal management), automated testing, f5 iRestControl api, vsphere powercli, and octopus deploy. I've played around with docker, kubernetes, python, and linux server setups. I do side projects
as well, viewable on my github account . I occasionally write on my blog .
I've also participated in several innovation projects at my day job like building a phone app with real time text
chat, exploring the web audio api and speech to text/text to speech apis and web workers, setting up a website and linux virtual machine to host a python flask api behind gunicorn and nginx to provide infrastructure for a team project using
machine learning to score user responses to tough leadership questions, creating a mad libs type game driven by input from your brain waves (see mindwave mobile headset>), and building
a robot controlled by the mindwave mobile headset as well - which we built together with kids from the YMCA. Contact me via my linkedin .
It was time to redo this site, mainly because https is highly encouraged now. Also I wasn\'t maintaing the old hosting server well so thought a clean slate would be good. Here we are. I like this console theme. Right now the "commands" are pretty basic but I hopefully will expand them in the future. Also I need to come up with a better way to deploy this site. Anyway, thanks for visiting.
