I find myself at an interesting time in my life. Thanks to the highly unpredictable National Resident Matching Program, my then-fiancée (now wife) was sent to Charlotte, North Carolina to do her medical residency for three years. Charlotte was the one city on her match list that did not have any companies in my industry–government contracting. The industry in which I had spent the better part of a decade. The industry in which I worked for various small businesses on a lot of interesting projects. The industry in which I was networked and knowledgeable.
I now find myself in a much bigger and broader community. It’s one that I want to be a part of. I find that many fellow software developers, engineers, architects, and managers keep a web presence as a kind of living résumé. So I’m putting myself out there too. I’m hoping to meet others who are passionate about technology and design, to network with them, and for us to gain new insights from each other.
Now, I read a lot. And I mean a lot. I am a news junkie, following mainly science & technology, politics, and world news. I also listen to podcasts regularly–This American Life, Radiolab, Planet Money, 99% Invisible, Freakonomics Radio, The Moth, and Decode DC. I binge on books. I am a huge consumer of media, but haven’t given much back to the world. I want to be as good at presenting information as I am consuming it. I want an outlet to share lines of English in addition to lines of code.
I hope you find something interesting here. And feel free to drop me a line. Enjoy!
