I am a software developer, manager, speaker, writer, photographer, and musician from Beaumont, Texas, but currently living in Seattle, Washington. Along the way, I've lived in Austin, London, Silicon Valley, and San Antonio.

My goal with this site has been to capture ideas of lasting value. In general, you won't find me posting about current news items or the latest technology. Instead, I am sharing essays and podcasts. Hopefully, this material will be of interest for longer than a week or two.

There's also information about my adventures in ham radio.

View my photography at Broadpool Photography. Read more about me or check out my résumé. Feel free to contact me.
