Working With Me
This is a breakdown of my processes and how to best work with me
All my work can be done from anywhere in the world with an internet connection.
Equipped with high-powered home and travel gear for hard work in my “dojo” or full-fledged IT Ninja work from my laptop (both Mac and PC).
TOOLS IN THE ARSENAL
these are some of the web/app tools in my toolbelt
I have a custom:
If you contact me and you’re not sure of my hours (timezone, etc.)
Just ask me…
Are you wearing pants?
Means I’m ready to tackle whatever you have for me
What I value the most
a.k.a Characteristics I seek to demonstrate
Open and Honest
I am a truthful, honest, and open-minded individual
When I say something, I mean it and will honor my word.
Just because I am silent doesn’t mean that I have nothing to say
Well-built, carefully crafted, thoughtful design, clever engineering
The minimal amount of steps between start and total completion
How to Help Me
a.k.a. How I Help Others
No matter what, even if emotions are high
Never give someone any kind of feedback without asking permission first
Clear goals and timeframes
Things work better when everyone is on the same page
a.k.a. How I prefer to get things done
The simpler, the better
“If you fail to plan, you plan to fail”
Sugar-coating wastes time, savor the flavor of all natural results
I’m more of a laser-beam than a spotlight

Photography and Digital Art
Click the button and be taken to my photography website.
I’ll soon post content related to my digital and real-world artwork as well.
Since the early 90’s (think Atari and NES) I’ve been button-smashing and a keyboard commando.
My favorite types of games are Simulation games. Minecraft, too (just celebrated my 11th year of playing).
I’ve been known to stream a couple of times a month and have a YouTube channel, too.
MAKING THINGS and D.I.Y.
Also… unmaking things. Breaking stuff is fun!
I own a 3D Printer, Soldering Iron, 3 Raspberry Pi(so far…), tons of arduino boards, breadboards, wires, buttons, switches, motors and motor controllers.
One day I’ll share some of my monstrosities publicly online, but… maybe tomorrow… 😛
When I geek out, I either watch or read about history, religion, and other socio-economic factors that shaped our world
I also love non-fiction and biographical novels/audio books
