About Me

I am a web systems developer and technical consultant with 20+ years of professional full-stack development experience living in the Portland, Maine area. I have been the technical lead at Confluent Forms since 2002.

My professional interests (at this time) include: Unix, Amazon Web Services, RaspberryPi, Go, JavaScript, Node, “static-dynamic” websites, stateless web architecture, microformats, technical mediation and systems analysis.

E-mail is still the best means of contact. Any social media accounts exist for development purposes: they are not in active use and never checked for content. I occasionally post interesting code musings at Codesiderations, and more business oriented topics at the Confluent Forms blog (with David Kutcher). You may also find me on GitHub.

Personal Projects

Each of these scratch a personal itch & have allowed me to explore emerging technologies:

Codesiderations

Personal musings on technical problems, static-dynamic website. Formally generated using my own static website generator, now a Jekyll project on GitHub pages.

ConcatNews

A collection of Reddit, HackerNews, Slashdot and other programming/tech related urls, auto-tagged for categorization.

Linguisti.cc

A web-based API, specifically for lanaguage tools, built as a third party API for Twiterature.

Poettit

Exploration of static-dynamic websites, haikus generated by Reddit comments.

Sartain

A blog/website generator in JavaScript, markdown as the main formatting language, since supplanted by Jekyll.

Twiterature

An interesting expression of a static-dynamic website, merging Project Gutenburg literature with popular tweets. Site is offline since the Twitter OAuth based API became required.

Vicarius

A proxy and cache for William Whitaker’s Words words with some enhancements for a better experience.
