“Probabilities collapse. I become increasingly unlikely.”

Robert Charles Wilson, “Divided by Infinity”

From Minnesota, via California, now New York. I’m always learning, and I often think most things should slow down a little. I’m still working on that practice for myself. I’ve been a tech nerd since my teens in the 1990s, but didn’t begin to take it seriously until around 2009.

I’m now a Desktop Systems Engineer with a large global law firm, involved in desktop & mobile security, testing, deployment, planning, and some elevated user support.

I enjoy spending time with my pets, going hiking, connecting with nature, anthropology, philosophy, spirituality, and tinkering with programming projects.

This site is powered by reliable old WordPress (with a custom theme), on a little hosted VPS, where I also run instances of Gitea, Miniflux, ZNC, BicBucStriim, & maybe some other things — supported by Caddy, PHP, mariadb, postgresql, and docker. On a couple little devices at home, I run OpenWrt-on-x64, magicmirror, Calibre-Web, Plex, transmission-openvpn, and a few other little things. (Arr!)
