I am a software developer, speaker, writer, photographer, and musician who is currently a part of the Developer Relations Group at Rackspace.

My goal with this site has been to capture ideas of lasting value. In general, you won't find me posting about current news items or the latest technology. Instead, I am sharing essays and podcasts. Hopefully, this material will be of interest for longer than a week or two.

I also have a blog about ham radio, but that's probably of interest to a far smaller audience than the rest of the site.

View my photography at Broadpool Photography. Read more about me or check out my résumé. Feel free to contact me.

The image on this page is Chicken Pot Pie.
