A Little About Myself

I'm a father of two who still manages to eke out slivers of time for my passions of making, fixing, and music.  If I'm not helping family you can usually find me making life easier through electronics or coding while blissed out to some deep tunes.

I enjoy fixing problems, helping those in need, and enjoying every bit of beauty I can find around me. 
I am a passionate technical professional with a wide range of skills in programming, business and technical analysis, process design and improvement, and IT Service Management.

If you have an interesting project or are in need of someone like me please let me know, I'd love to help.  Pick your favorite method of communication from the Contact Me section below and let's chat.

Projects I'm particularly fond of


Oracle SQL Scripting

Not a (work)day goes by when I'm not writing a SQL statement! I use primarily Oracle SQL, but am no stranger to other solutions. I've built a fairly extensive tool-set and I've made a copy (minus any sensitive or irrelevant content) available at my Maximo-Oracle-SQL-Public repository over at GitHub. Check it out!

Maximo Automation Scripting

I do a lot of work with Maximo in my day job. Over time we've needed to make enhancements which weren't directly supported by the solution, some of which required automation scripting. Let me know if you'd like more detail on the solutions I've come up with!

 


Linux Bash Scripting

I run many Linux machines at home, from my laptop to numerous Raspberry Pi's. I've leveraged my love of scripting to help me in maintaining these machines, helping them communicate, and keeping them all up to date. You can see my public (cleansed of IPs and other sensitive information) repository of scripts over at GitHub.

Rotary Message Machine

I found this gem while cleaning out a box and decided to give it new life. At first it became a message machine where you could record and playback voice messages (great fun for parties) but then I decided to tweak it for use as an animal sounds toy for my kids. Dial 6 to hear a lion. You can see the C code I used here.

Photography

My photography has been with me through thick and thin. Though most of my pictures these days are of the kids I have a wide range of subject matter. I've selected some of my favorites and posted them over on my Photography Page.
