About

Me In 30 Seconds:

I live by several mantras; I ain’t afeared of no man, ghost, nor goats. I don’t take no for an answer, no prisoners, and no crap from no one. When I foresee or detect any trouble, I proceed to kick butt, and stack’em 10 high.

Me in 300 seconds – If you are a slow reader

I like to have fun while working hard, and love God, family, technology, people, art, music and bicycling. I love self-deprecating humor, and the other kinds–if there are any. What I don’t like is waiting in long lines, your mom, or cats.

I’m one of those rare people with a weird balance of being both left and right-brained. I play well with others, remain calm in emergencies, and am a top performer whether alone or working with a team.

I’ve never been one to just sit on their laurels (whatever those are) waiting for things to happen. I enjoy working with people, learning new things, and engineering cool solutions. Check out this page for recruiting information.

A lot of what I do each day, is help others not shoot themselves in the foot, or shoot other people’s feet (aka minimize risk) by understanding people and technology.

Blogging

This is a blog I have migrated around from different platforms since 2004. It went like this if I recall correctly:

  • blogspot
  • Openshift/Wordpress/MySQL
  • Openshift/Ghost/MySQL
  • Openshift/Github pages/Jekyll
  • Netlify/Github pages/Jekyll/LetsEncrypt

Can you believe how much I dominate the nerd scene? Neither can I!
