About

This is my own little section of the series of tubes that make up the internet.

I live in Schenectady, NY, with my wife Cate, our cat, Linode[TheCat], and our dog, Bristol.

During the day, I’m a software developer for a company you’ve probably heard of. We make software used by a niche group of engineers, and I make it run really fast, using all sorts of fun technologies. I also champion not acquiring technical debt, which isn’t always the popular position.

By night (and weekends), I tinker with several projects, from the often mentioned Twittering Dehumidifier, to an SMS based app to tell you about your fuel mileage. I’m also a volunteer firefighter, and an EMT (I do their website too!).

I’ve recently turned into a bit of a running nut, which I’ve found is a great way to work off stress (fitness is a nice side effect).
