This content is stale and no longer maintained. It is based on a snapshot of taken around March 5, 2022.

The content is faithful to what was on the site that day, including presentation and errors in both code and text. In order for it to run, however I have had to update some hard-coded values in a lot of the files. Poor technique last time around. I have also added this banner and the menu link to the current site.

Summary and Skills


IT Contractor, 2015 – Present

Company: Technisource (Randstad)

Position: Business Systems Consultant

Food Service Sabbatical, 2012 – 2015

During the recent Recession, I found my IT job prospects increasingly less challenging and rewarding. So I tried something else. I started as a dishwasher at a casual fine dining restaurant, and later worked my way up to senior cook in a large corporate kitchen. Along the way, I honed the skills of a beloved lifelong hobby, made friends with people from all over the world, strengthened my organizational skills and resilience, and impressed even my own self with my capacity for hard, physical work.
