Husband, Mariner, Crabber, Software Developer
I ride my bicycle around the Lower Florida Keys a lot, usually to the tune of a few thousand miles per year. I've been developing software and building computer networks for a few decades, and I've evolved a mobile office that extends as far as five nautical miles out to sea, to serve clients in various time zones.
Some of the technologies I develop for include Ruby On Rails, PHP/Zend Framework, iOS/Objective-C, and Johnson/OMC outboard engines. I give clients my very best, without distraction, on a rigid schedule, so that I can do the same with my wife and furry family for the rest of the time.
I am powered by sunlight, crabs, and coconut water.
I was born in Kansas.
Villa Villekula is a 17-foot Angler skiff, powered by an 88HP 2-stroke Johnson/OMC Outboard. She runs in about a foot of water and does about 19-20kts.
S/V Therapy is an O'Day 222 sailboat, with a hull speed of around 6kts. She draws less than 2 feet with the centerboard up, and enjoys 4-foot seas.
