I code, therefore I am (a web developer)

About Me

I write code. I make that code as obvious, clean, and elegant as possible. I focus on simplicity. Users know what they want.

Despite living in the city, wilderness is my real home. I'm extremely passionate about our public lands and experiencing all I can in nature. Camping, hiking, and backpacking are things I do frequently, especially in National Parks and Monuments. I've been to 11 so far; only 100 or so to go.

Since hiking and backpacking are usually slow pace activities, I have to get my adrenaline rushes elsewhere. To get my fix, I go pebble wrestling (bouldering) and rock climbing. Climbing is basically solving puzzles using my center of gravity and a small dose of finger strength. It's actually a lot like programming.
See the problem -> Figure out how to get through it -> Apply your solution.

I also enjoy riding and wrenching on my motorcycle. It's neat that a machine, seemingly so complex and intimidating (I mean, have you looked under your car hood lately?), is actually incredibly simple. Mechanic work is, again, a lot like programming. Simple systems working in harmony to produce a beautiful and functional machine.
