Once I gave a talk at Denver Startup Week titled Frontend Doesn't Suck Anymore: It's 2017 and the web is fun again. Learn how to move out of the backend and embrace the good parts of the modern browser.
I help run Colorado Tech Community, a friendly space on Discord for all sorts of people in the Colorado tech sphere. We'd love to have you there chatting with us!
Photography has been one of my artistic loves since high school. I sell prints of my best photos. Lately I've been expanding into video with a vintage Hi-8 Sony camcorder from my childhood, publishing short videos on YouTube.
I travel and scuba dive as much as I can. I'd love to talk about my favorites – Ireland, France, Japan, the Philippines – or wherever you've been recently. I also play a lot of Tradle.
I write from time to time on my technical blog, Kestrel Development. I also run a personal newsletter for friends and family in lieu of social media.
I make and sell original stickers on Redbubble, vintage poster restorations and original adaptations on Society6, and tiny things on Etsy.
I love spending time on lots of other special interests too. I'll always make time to chat with you about gardening, 3D printing, motorcycles, bicycles, or airplanes.
