i have been a full stack developer for years, a professional developer for over 20.

i believe in limited on-site office time so that we aren't commuting every day. The commute eats us alive, destroys the planet and hinders creativity. Working from home allows a life balance and extra time to devote to passion.

My passion is delivering amazing technology through collaborative software development.

Last year I purchased a 2005 LJ for $2,000. We took it out to the Mounds and beat it up then brought it back and parked it. Like any jeep of that era it was happy to be beaten.

Now, I am tearing it down so that it can be built back up as a V8 powered, super fun to drive, tire shredding outlaw.

The only real thing I know is that I want a GM 5.3 VM with an automatic transmission. Don't hate, I have always had a manual, have one now, and will continue to love rowing gears. But, I already have that manual trail jeep.

With this one, I want that paddle shift as I'm ripping up Test Hill out at the dunes. This should be a great adventure that you can tune in to over at YouTube.
