I’ve always had a passion for technology and the ways it can improve people’s lives. In my professional career, I have been:
- Server-side web developer
- Front-end web developer
- Development Team Lead
- DevOps lead
- Software Architect
And I’ve worked extensively with the following software:
And I’ve had some experience with numerous other technologies.
While my background is primarily in software I also tinker with electronics, ranging from mobile devices to the Raspberry Pi.
Personally, I have a Master’s Degree in Computer Science. Education was a huge factor in shaping who I am personally and professionally.
More broadly, I think education is one of the most important things for society to focus on. Many of the problems facing the world today will only be solved by well educated people, and I think bringing the best possible education to the widest possible audience is one of the best ways to accelerate the advancement of our society.
Until very recently, I worked for Computerized Assessments and Learning, hoping to combine two of my passions and use technology to help further education. As CA&L was dissolved and absorbed into its parent company, I decided to go freelance to pursue these passions independently.
I am the father of two young boys, and they are a huge part of my world. Part of my passion for education stems from wanting to make sure my own children get a good education, and grow up in a world where education is given a high priority.
I also work hard to expose my boys to a wide range of technology. They’ve both used computers from a very early age, and a while back we even set out to build a Raspberry Pi driven robot!
Another major passion of mine is food. Aside from liking to eat good food, I like to learn how to make a wide variety of food. I’ve been making my own pizza for years, and have recently started dabbling in cheese making, including my first successful traditional cheddar.
