Professional

Here's my LinkedIn profile and my resume. I also put together a career narrative. Before all that I did an enlistment in the Marines.

I have been a software engineer since 1997, primarily working with JVM languages and in the telecommunications domain. Right now at work I do Java8, some Groovy and a little Scala. I did full-time Scala for a few years.

For the past few years I have been a remote worker. The engineers I work with are all over the country, technically the home office is Denver but I live in Lafayette, Louisiana.

According to Gallup, here are my strengths:

  1. Learner
  2. Strategic
  3. Achiever
  4. Focus
  5. Responsibility

Personal

Besides working I like to spend time with my family and lift. I'm also newly into amateur radio, my call sign is w6dln. I mess around on the guitar, it's a low priority thread that has me learning a song every 8 months. It's fun, analog and relaxing.
