Personal Summary

I value candor and strive to exemplify it, both professionally and personally. I have plenty of room to grow. :-)

I am an avid fan of computing history and love learning about computers, operating systems, networking, computer graphics and videogames.

My current hobby is weight training and nutrition. I’ve added 80lbs to my bench press in the past 8 months. I’ve lost 10lbs and have gone through significant body recomposition.

I also enjoy programming. These days the majority of my programming is probably done in Bash for configuring and scripting my desktop environments. Beyond that I’m primarily using Ruby professionally, Go sometimes professionally and sometimes for hobby purposes, and some variant of plain C for personal projects; often C99.
