About

Only in order of colloquial priority…

By day, I am the Director of Content Technology at Jones & Bartlett Learning. This means various things depending on the context of my 15+ year tenure there. Currently, I have strong interests in content architecture, metadata schemas and structures, and the systems that support them.

At night, I mess around with code and music by doing my level best to combine the two wherever possible, and hanging out with my kids.

I tend to post my favorite code snippets from my personal wiki in the hopes that they will help someone out of similar jams I have found myself in after I had found documentation seen elsewhere lacking for whatever reason. Some large and mostly complete projects have been placed on GitHub for others’ use and enjoyment.

There used to be a blog with which I have a sporadic, contentious relationship that allowed me to post whatever itch needs scratching or share whatever may catch my eye. That may get updated from time to time, but no promises. Occasionally NSFW, because I sometimes curse. Posts are not always (read as: practically never) noted as such, so reader beware. Just so we’re absolutely clear, this is a personal web site where I write whatever the hell I want where nothing I publish represents the position of my employer, and I tinker with the site as I please, so I make no guarantees everything on the site will stay on the site in perpetuity.

Beyond that, there is also my resume and some obligatory legal jargon. Below is a copy of my usual avatar for the online forums I frequent to varying (usually lesser) degrees.

Anyone is welcome to contact me (an email address is casually hidden in the Legal page) with comments and questions.

Cheers
