At Depict (my current job), I build API endpoints and build React+Redux features that consume them; use Express JS; Redis for caching; debug Swift iOS code; integrate cloud services, such as Cloudinary, Stripe, and Amazon S3, into our web-based apps; and much more; and in my free time, process natural language with prolog and learn the newest JavaScript libraries and technologies. My hobby is creative writing; the arts, visual, written, and otherwise, are my passion--especially combining them with engineering.

I began my career in web development because I undertook a free-time project that really drove me. More significantly, coding is the funnest thing I've done for which I was really well paid. It is a creative exploit, and therefore I throw myself into it headlong. We devs and engineers have an awesome career. Writing fiction is just as fun, and I'm part of the Worldbuilding StackExchange.

My passions at work are blazing fast, maintainable code. Also, I love front-end graphical stuff, such as Babylon JS, D3, new charting or graphical libs. In my free time, I'm into natural-language processing. I want to create the best interactive story system, which carries me into Logical AI. I am a long-time user of SO, but only got started as a contributor here since prolog; I'm kind of a prolog junky.

Please see my profile for my primary skills. That is something that changes often.

I'll also throw out some authors and some works I love, though the list will be brutally abbreviated: David Foster Wallace, William Trevor, Cormac McCarthy, Alice Munro, Doris Lessing, Gertrude Stein; Aristotle and John Searle in philosophy. My favorite books are probably Inifinite Jest, Blood Meridian, and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.

I got my BA (in English) in 2003 at the University of Texas in my hometown of Austin, Texas. I got my MFA in Creative Writing, fiction, in 2010 at New Mexico State University, in Las Cruces, NM.
