Latest Updates




  • Filigree
    • Got the object storage abstraction and configuration finished up over the weekend.
    • Now I"m starting on a "File" type of model, which will allow the template system to generate code that handles uploads, and optionally stores things like file hash, image type, etc. in the database.




  • Filigree
    • Starting on object storage support. Once done, this will add a File type to the database model, set up the client, and also make it easy to do things like stream files to and from the client. And of course the template system will initialize everything for you.




  • Smelter
    • The worker framework now handles SIGINT for you, and gives your code a channel that will change when the task should be cancelled.
    • Published v0.1.0 of the Smelter crates, since it's about to go into production at work!
  • Effectum
    • More work on outbox pattern. The code is pretty much done, just needs tests.

About Me


I'm currently taking some time off, but previously I co-founded and spent nine years working on Carevoyance (acquired by H1 Insights), a sales acceleration tool that analyzes healthcare data and enables healthcare sellers to zero in on their best prospects and generate custom reports and insights with just a few clicks.

I spent most of my time there creating new data analyses, working on the backend API and database systems, and developing tooling to research data anomalies and automate repetitive tasks. I also successfully transitioned the entire frontend application from AngularJS to SvelteKit.

In the past I worked almost exclusively in C++ and various assembly languages. Now that I'm more in the web ecosystem, I'm mostly writing Javascript for work, using Rust when I can justify it, and grudgingly dealing with Python's package system for AI/ML work.

Before starting my own venture, I interfaced with advanced network switching chips at Arista Networks and worked on JTAG hardware debuggers and embedded operating systems at Green Hills Software. Running a small startup feels very different from working at these companies, and it has its ups and downs, but I love it.


I usually have a few side projects going on, and I have a selection listed on my projects page. There you'll find a bunch of data workflow stuff, a personal dashboard, an AI assistant to amuse my kids, and other things in various states of done-ness.

Sometimes I wish I could code all day and night, but when not hacking on something or spending time with my family, I enjoy good coffee, nature photography, reading nonfiction and sci-fi, and improving my nascent design and UX skills. I'm also active in my church and run the sound board there every few weeks.
