Uptime: (see stats)



There’s a Lemur back there, somewhere.

If you’re here, you’re at least mildly interested in the words on this page. That’s really neat.

I started this blog in January 2015 as a way to put my never ending stream of consciousness onto digital paper and give me an opportunity to work through ideas I have in my head.

By no means am I anyone special. Just a guy hanging out in the pacific northwest that likes coffee, Netflix, and wine.

(Am I writing my dating profile, right now?)

On occasion code manifests from my fingers. I’m largely a rubyist though I fancy some quality front-end action from time to time.

I'm also terrible at Rocket League and Call of Duty though I still enjoy playing both.

The Tools I Use

The Stack

Ghost is a Node.js application operating along with a MySQL database. Serving pages to the public is nginx as a forward proxy.

Getting in Touch
