I’ve been in tech a long time, and worn, as is the modernish parlance, many, many hats. I’ve worked in many industries, including finance, staffing, legal, federal government, consulting, and other services.
I "play" Minecraft as the oldest player on a large and popular queer, trans-friendly, all-ages socialist Minecraft server. Many servers choose to pursue free market capitalism with some sort of currency add-on. But ours is a post-scarcity socialist server.
A general bucket of useful educational materials and writeups. Blog entries will mostly be advice/opinion. Other materials as I can contextualize them. This is derived work from other projects, or incidental side efforts.
A project to finally familiarize myself with how to create and run gaming streaming sessions (with Twitch.tv), and host archives there as well as on YouTube for longer storage. Also to help me get over my psychological barrier against recording myself.
I help with volunteer and pro-bono projects involving data collection, analysis, interpretation, and visualization. I can also help remove or address bias, especially in social justice contexts. (Photo by Pixabay)
Seeking to fight toxic masculinity and the old saw of "man lore" whereby men teach other men to fuck up housekeeping so they won't be asked to help again, we seek to provide practical housekeeping tips, and get men to contribute, by teaching them how. (Others too!)
In 1996 I left Grad School at George Washington University in Physical Chemistry for a career in technology. I started as a Network Engineer, then became a consultant, then went into web development, then went into technical leadership, then went into product management and security, then returned to consulting, then became a systems engineer and release engineer. There, I stayed on for 8 years, then went into consulting and web development again. Then I took a year off to study data analytics/data science. Now I’m looking for my next role, and trying really hard to find a role that I really enjoy.
