Location Washington, United States
Introduction I'm a lifelong learner but, more importantly, I love teaching others. This isn't motivated by ego but by seeing others achieve more, become better, and find successes that were once out of reach. When I'm not helping others hone their craft in software development, I'm trying to learn the skills to share my craft of blacksmithing on YouTube, happily doing my spouse's bidding, playing RPGs, digital or analog, and occassionally brewing beer. I also hang out with some Steampunk friends and enjoy all things geeky. You can follow me on Twitter: https://twitter.com/jackpinesinfo
Interests Software Engineering, Brewing, Blacksmithing, Humanity
Favorite Movies I tend towards fantasy, sci-fi, and action flicks but will happily shed tears watching a "Sunday" movie, like "Up!" or "The Train to Busan" with my spouse.
Favorite Music Anything from BTS to Tony Rice, a Bluegrass great, from Stevie Ray Vaughn to Beastie Boys, from Dolly Parton to Metallica. I could keep doing this for a while but I think you get it.
Favorite Books I read about anything except for romance novels. I have a great regard for all that Heinlein wrote as he often took 2 dimensional characters and put them into scenarios which forced them to develop depth, in turn making me think critically about the basis of my own ethics.
