Meet the Author

I currently work for Lenovo where I develop web-based productivity tools for the data-center group. Prior to this position, I helped develop test tools to validate the x86 server hardware that Lenovo (and, previously, IBM) made. Programming is a hobby of mine, though I don’t program for pleasure as often as I once did. Several of my non-computing related interests include photography, music, and hiking, especially at any of North Carolina’s many state parks.

My Photography

My personal photos live on their own sub-domain here at Born Geek. The software I use to power my photo album, which I have lovingly dubbed “Monkey Album”, is a custom creation. It is written using PHP and MySQL and is, to some extent, modeled after a third-party album package I once employed. I consider Monkey Album to be a work in progress, so don’t be surprised if you eventually see a new feature or two.
