Story
Tagline
Developer, Technologist, Photography and Astronomy Enthusiast, Aspiring Marathoner and family man.
Introduction
I'm a software developer both by trade and training. I've been "converted", on my own, to Python to the point that I find every other language to be unsightly ugly. I've been a passionate photographer hobbyist of 20+ years (since my dad lent me his SLR when I was merely old enough to hold it).

I'm a goal- and purpose-driven person. I cannot aimlessly navigate the waters of daily life. I thrive by challenging myself. Since late last year I decided to go from "never ran a 5K in my life" to "I finished the NYC marathon in less than 5 hours" so far I'm on target.

I've undertaken the goal to finish a full marathon in 260 minutes (about 4:20, ~10min/mile) and I will put my will and endurance to the test on January 12th, 2014 at the Disney World Marathon.

Employment
  • Info Tech, Inc.
    Developer/Technologist, 2006 - present
    In my current role I'm part of a small team that develops "production-ready" proof-of-concepts. This means that we explore, choose, design, architect, implement and thoroughly test limited scope minimum viable products. It also means we are in a dynamic environment and are always ready to shift gears in a meeting's notice.
