I work with Technology for what it can do for people. The rest of the time I do with as little of it as possible. I volunteer for a variety of causes, as I am able, and I belong to several local community groups. When not consulting, I am developing Website using NGNIX, Linux, Word Press, MySQL and Microsoft SharePoint. It is currently at a proof-of-concept stage running on my private cloud server. My work as a professional developer began in 2012 while working as an IT technician as I transitioned into to systems programming and then applications programming and eventually Database Development and Administration.


The thoughts, opinions, and advice presented in this blog are all my own, and don’t reflect the company I work for. While I love working with different people and companies, things I blog about here are all done on my own time, and for the benefit of my own learning and development as well as knowledge sharing with the greater technical community.
