I like to build efficient, beautiful systems. From my time as an artist where beauty was required on zero budget, to years as an independent Sys. Admin where things just had to work seamlessly and simply, to recent projects where I have helped to get exploratory research functioning and tested in the real world --- I take great pride and joy building and deploying useful beautiful additions to our world.
