What interests you about this career?
I’m curious by nature. From a very young age, I would take things apart around the house to learn how they worked. (They didn’t always go back together again) Being a web developer lets me take apart the web to learn how it works.
Where else have you worked?
I have worked in sales, product, marketing, development, and even behind a bar. I’m a bit of a jack of all trades.
What are you passionate about?
I am passionate about using technology to solve unique pervasive problems. The whole process from identifying a problem, iterating over solutions, and then shipping an amazing product is pure joy!
What are the best things about your job?
I get to work in a supportive environment with passionate people who are all working towards a common goal.
What music are you listening at the moment?
What I’m listening to tends to change from day to day. One day I’ll be listening to folky stuff and another I’ll be listening to some hard psychedelic. This morning I’m listening to DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince. It’s summertime!
What are you reading at the moment?
I am currently reading Hyperion by Dan Simmons. It’s a sci-fi novel about a mysterious world. Aren’t they all?
What do you do outside of work/school to amuse yourself?
I am an avid rock climber and I like to repair old cameras and electronics. Yes, these are hobbies I picked up during the pandemic.
What exciting plans do you have coming up in the next year?
My wife and I are currently renovating our basement. Maybe stressful is a better word to describe it?
