About me

Gender Male
Industry Technology
Occupation Manager
Location Eagan, Minnesota, United States
Introduction I'm a technology manager for an analytics+ company in California, although I'm based out of Minnesota. My background is a lead software developer specializing in C# and SQL Server, but dabbling in Java, Perl, PHP, Ruby, Python, and other things (and coming from a self-taught VB background). Often I worry about z/OS boxes and how to get data off of them, although recently I'm more in the small-ish app space [and since then, the analytics and ML/AI space and now cloud tooling]. However, my educational background is in Tudor/Stuart history, English (literature) and English (creative writing - I did my thesis on dystopias and my Master's degree is from Hamline University - go Pipers [my siblings have three other degrees from Hamline]).
Interests Bicycling, Reading, Brewing, Politics, Programming [currently WASM and Typescript, but much more], Board Games
Favorite Movies The Princess Bride, Logan's Run, Prince of Darkness, Donnie Darko, Mulholland Drive, Dystopias.
Favorite Books Dystopias, Meaning Anything Dystopic/Antisocial, Armor (at least it was my favorite for a while - not anymore), Tudor/Stuart History, Vinge.
