I'm still testing a couple things on here. Expect incomplete content.
I've never been particularly good talking (or writing) about myself. I'm just a geek who loves Linux, PHP, and open protocols. I'm creative and like to find new solutions to problems that many times don't exist. My friends would say I'm a little paranoid; I don't use Facebook, Twitter, or Google+. The truth is, I like putting together my own solutions and running my own networks when possible, rather than rely on 3rd parties. Digitally that is, I'll still immediatelly call AAA for a flat tire though.
Some terms that may help define me; Tolkein, Hitchens, Open Source, Professional Tinkerer, Teacher.
Other than that, if I'm not hacking away at my software projects, I'm most likely deep into a book on my Kindle (Paperwhite or HDX). I love my Kindles and am an avid reader.

If you're looking to hire me, check out my skillset below. On top of some businesses and projects I run, I freelance as a PHP developer and Linux systems administrator. If you're looking to create a web application, need consulting on Linux servers or deployments, or need some sort of ongoing server management, go ahead and get in touch with me.
Here's some quick tools I've created. Usually because I was bored, or wanted to practice a new design by overengineering a simple application. The source for most of this can be found on my git server.
Due to some web "openess" and principles about how the internet should work, you won't find me on popular networks like Facebook, Google+, Twitter, or many others. There are however other corners of the internet I sometimes hide in.
