About

What can I say? First and foremost, my pronouns are he/him. Also, I’m a huge nerd. I have approx 20 years of experience in various IT fields including (but not limited to):

CODING

I have a background in Linux, kernel dev (I traditionally build my own for use on my Linux based systems), web dev, Python, MySQL, SAP, Rust, Ruby, HTML, and a few others. As well, I am a huge proponent of open-source software, and use it as much as possible. This has given me a lot of familiarity with building programs directly from source code.

DIGITAL ART

I am familiar with the entire Adobe suite, as well as GIMP, Krita, Wondershare Filmora, as well as a host of others that it would take too long to list here.

DE/UI DESIGN and MODIFICATION

I love designing desktops that are useful to the individual user (usually me, though I have done a few for others). [Placeholder for link to Desktops page]

HARDWARE

I can build and program systems ranging from SFF boxes to use for Kodi, to gaming desktops/workstations, to small business servers. I can also repair and/or replace most components of the afore mentioned.

As for things not strictly skill-related, I am a voracious consumer of news, an ardent lefty, a music lover (my collection of vinyl albums is one of my most prized possessions), and (quite importantly) a friend to the LGBTQ2+ community.
