Hello! My name is John.

Welcome to my About page. I should throw out some descriptives, right? Male, 30-something, nerd, musician, coffee addict, programmer. Texas-born, raised in Alabama. Earned a BS in Computer Science and an MS in Instructional Technology from Mississippi State University. Currently making a living in Asheville, North Carolina. Drives a Leaf. Legally entangled to my partner-in-crime and co-pet-parent Amanda. Obligated to feed my cats and to walk my dachshunds.

I probably have very little to say that is worth saying.

That being said, I intend to say some things. Most of what I plan to write here will be web- and security-related. I will also likely write about electric cars, music, sports, family, pets, genealogy, and the least amount of politics possible.

I’ve tried this before.

I’ve owned this domain for over a decade, and I have blogged very poorly in the past. Only time will tell if I do better this time.

Let’s talk.

I am happy to have a conversation about anything I write here, either in the comments section or on Twitter. Feel free to add to, refute, amend, correct, and debate anything on this site. All I ask is that you post comments as if your saintly grandmother was reading (not the salty one that taught you how to swear).
