I'm a software engineer from the suburbs of the great city of Pittsburgh, PA USA with over a decade of software development experience (I started coding when I was seven) which I've gained from a combination of hobbyist projects, such as LibreScribe as well as through software development courses both at Peters Township High School and Penn State Erie, the Behrend College. It's always exciting to work on new projects, and I am passionate about the work that I do. I love to experiment and I'm not afraid to try new things even if that means that I will fail.
Lately, my focus has been on Android mobile development as well as virtualization, such as deploying web architecture using Xen Server, KVM or OpenVZ. I have dabbled in OpenStack and the like using my own bare-metal hardware and I find the prospect of more efficiently utilizing the capacity of a server to be fascinating.
I am and have always been a huge proponent of the open source development model. I have been using Linux as my primary operating system on my own computers since I was 12 years old. I started with Slackware and didn't like that, but quickly discovered Fedora and began to use it as my primary operating system. I'm currently running Linux Mint, as well as a large amount of other free and open source applications. I try to open source as much of my own work as legally possible and believe that doing so benefits other developers and produces higher quality code.
I am currently in the job market as a Penn State alumnus and I am currently evaluating and applying for prospective careers. If you would like to offer me a position, my résumé is available on this website, and you can reach me through email by using the contact information provided on it.
