From my Linkedin:
I'm a seasoned software engineer with a decade of experience across a broad
spectrum of technologies. I've worked in a variety of companies ranging from
small startups in someone's dining room (there were no garages available) to
large scale companies with tens of thousands of employees and billions of users.
Some experience in management and data analysis.
Procedural Generation - I've played around with some procedurally generated
systems in the past for game projects and it is a lot of fun. Some past
experiments include a
Ruby project that
includes generated heightmaps and plate tectonics, and some poorly documented
to do some Perlin-noise-based tile maps.
Economics - at one point I did a Master's degree in economics since I found
it interesting. I didn't continue beyond that since the jobs available to
me as a software engineer were more interesting and higher-paying than the
ones available as an economist, but it's still an interesting field. I've
been playing a bit more with it on my
Econerra project, which is
an application of multi-agent simulation and complexity to economics.
Computer Vision - I recently completed Udacity's
with a focus on computer vision. This is a super interesting field these days,
not just on the academic side but with a number of the applications like
self-driving cars, robots, UAVs, etc.
Permaculture - It's not always about technology around here. I love to grow
things, especially in a sustainable way. My lifestyle hasn't given me many
opportunities to pursue this interest, however with the recent move to
Boulder I at least have some garden beds to play around with this.

A simpler web - as evidenced by this website, I'm part of the growing group
of people who are tired of the messy complexity of the modern web. I was a
front-end developer once-upon-a-time, but am now just baffled by how complex
the modern build chain is, and am not 100% convinced that it is better.
