About Me

I am a web tech and systems consultant with 25 years of professional full-stack development experience living in the Portland, Maine area. I was a Principal at Confluent Forms for many years and now the lead engineer for a cybersecurity SaaS company in Maine: Defendify. See my resume for more detail.

My professional interests (at this time) include: Unix, Amazon Web Services, Cybersecurity, Raspberry Pi, Go, V, JavaScript, Node, Vue, “static-dynamic” websites, stateless web architecture, microformats, technical mediation and systems analysis. I believe in continual self-improvement both as a general technologist and as a full-stack developer.

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 used to post interesting code musings at Codesiderations.

I have some older npm modules and inconsequential WordPress plugins. More likely to find me writing V modules today. You may also find me on GitHub as tleen or thomasify.

If you wish to send me encrypted e-mail my public key is available.

Personal Projects

Have had very little time since 2018 for hobby projects.

A few personal projects, each of these scratch an itch & have allowed me to explore emerging (at the time) technologies:

A website/api for generating random-hyphenated-names.


Exploration of static-dynamic websites, creating haikus from Reddit comments.

Concat News

A news meta-aggregator for technical topics of interest.


The closest thing I have to a blog: a place for personal musings on technical problems.


An enhanced proxy for the William Whitaker’s Words web application.

Also: Sartain, Twiterature,, Rochester Child Care &
