At this very instant I am...

Living in Minneapolis, where I enjoy walking, biking, or canoeing to get to where I want to be. I attend events around the Twin Cities and I'm frequently at various local bars and breweries catching up with my neighbors and friends! I'm still sad that the Twin Cities Code Camp has ended.

Working for Crate & Barrel on modernizing (read: distributing) their ecommerce system, where I get to work with a bunch of fantastic people!

Researching distributed systems architectures. Distributed systems are hard.

Considering The classic design patterns. SOLID, ACID, and the like. Are they still important? To what degree? Could we break them up and come out with something new? This is my book club topic in April. If you've got any thoughts on this, you should contact me, and if you want to see what I come up with then you should subscribe to my book club!

Practicing my skills in pool and billiards. Snooker is my favorite sport, and while I don't have easy access to a table in Minneapolis, I can practice other cue sports.

Developing freeplanningpoker.io because every other online tool for this is costly or limited or not what I want, and this is an easy sort of thing to do. Want to help? I have some good first issues defined in the repository!

Wondering what else I could include on this page and how I might keep it up-to-date.
