I currently work as a Solutions Engineer for Lucidworks. You can see my profile on LinkedIn.
I also sold drugs for about 7 years (legally, of course… in a retail pharmacy).
On the side, I do various freelance work including:
- website design (front and back end)
- building custom systems
- consulting on various technologies
I’ve been programming since I was 14. I am self-taught in PHP and MySQL. Then I found out how terrible my code was when I started interacting with other developers. I later began a computer science degree and learned all the wonders of programming. After I started working professionally with databases, my interest has focused there. I like working with data, modeling, optimizing and learning about all the “IT depends”. I completed a Master’s in fall of 2017. I enjoy learning from others and sharing what I know. I try to do that on StackOverflow (check out my flair):
I also played professional laser tag for 5 years.
