- <p>If you're an investor or employer, you should know
- I'm a brilliant, witty savant who is super driven to
- take over the world with you. Check out my LinkedIn up
- top!</p>
+ My professional experience begins in the summers of 2004
+ and 2005 at Lost Pines Scout Reservation as a swimming
+ and canoeing instructor. To this day nothing I have done
+ has been more challenging or complicated than getting
+ children to sit still and listen when they're outside in

- <p>Everyone else: Hi! Welcome. I try to keep an open
- mind and I hate working on things that aren't
- interesting, or purely driven by money. I'm not going
- to help optimize spammy conversion pages, I'm not going
- to A/B test basic human greetings, etc. Really cool
- things come out of love, so you need to love what you
- do.</p>
+ I enjoy designing and reasoning about software. I have
+ worked for
+ as an internal developer, the Texas Department of
+ Insurance, the occasional
+ small business, and I take on contract work mostly in
+ web development. I keep up
+ to date with tools, ideas, and techniques and try to
+ have a diverse palette to
+ draw from when solving a problem.
- <p>In high school I did competitive literary criticsm.
- They actually gave me a letter jacket for my feats. I
- can't decide how cool this makes me.</p>
+ Larry Wall is correct: the hallmarks of a good
+ programmer are laziness,
+ impatience, and hubris. My goal is to exemplify all
+ three.
- <p>I was kind of bad at math in high school and only
- chose computer science because I had this notion that
- if I'm going to be paying (yes, I) for school by
- selling organs, I'd better get my money's worth. So I
- picked something I wasn't fantastic at.</p>
- <p>Fast forward. I've tried veganism, brewed kombucha,
- volunteered for festivals, learned to play Fur Elise
- behind my head, been on the board of directors of two
- cooperative systems in Austin, and kissed a stingray.
- In my spare time I read math papers and teach on a
- volunteer basis. Turns out I wasn't bad at math; I was
- just uninspired. Seeing the world a bit, and in various
- states of mind, has been fantastic for realizing
- what's important.</p>
- <p>So I'd prefer it if my work actually made someone
- happy.</p>
+ My goals are to solve meaningful problems that improve
+ lives. I am not
+ interested in money as an end. In particular I believe
+ that logical inference
+ can be used to improve interpersonal relationships,
+ emergency logistics, and
+ long-term strategic planning. Or, you know, to make
+ robots do cool things. I
