I'm a born and raised Texan, living in the Washington DC metroplex. That sounds
like the pitch for a TV sitcom, but it's my life. Practically speaking, it
means I usually have some sort of Dallas Cowboys paraphernalia nearby, or can
be caught uttering phrases like, "Y'all'd've done better if you tried harder."
Allow me to translate that grammatical massacre:
you all would have. I'm truly sorry, but this is real. I also have to navigate epic levels
of highway traffic on the daily.
I work on a variety of projects, both professionally and personally. I love programming in Rust and any sort of mental challenge. Another passion of mine is teaching. I typically teach courses related to Linux and Programming (Rust or Python), but have also taught courses in Digital Identity Management.
Over the years I've programmed in Rust, Python, C#.NET, Java (long ago) and dabbled in Go.
If you catch me away from a computer I'm either lifting weights, trying to beat personal bests, or skydiving. Fun fact, my GitHub profile picture is me in a skydiving helmet about to jump, not a motorcycle helmet like many think.
It should go without saying, but all thoughts on this site are my own and not that of my employers or anyone else.
