I'm an art-making, slacklining, and boardsporting technobilly from the mountains of North Carolina who works with distributed systems and the web.
By day: I fight for the user by resolving complex issues in distributed systems environments and writing useful documentation.
By night: I make visual art, create web stuff, build robots, and write poetry.
I'm a nerd, and am interested in a wide range of technologies — these are some that I enjoy working with both personally and professionally:
I enjoy using open source technologies such as those by Mapbox to create beautiful and useful maps with public data.
Technologies like D3, Nodebox, and Processing are always exciting to me for creating chaotic imagery based on obscure data inputs.
Software robots have always had a special place in my titanium reinforced heart ♥ especially the socially awkward ones.
As a General class amateur radio operator (K4APP), I enjoy all kinds of signals — particularly the ones from space.
I enjoy classic systems administration, and the topics of DevOps, automation, containers, and virtualization are all favorite computer topics of mine; I also like to save time by automating all the things!
From mobile and web application development, to the tools that help make it more fun and efficient. I dig front end stuff.
