I am most comfortable with Python, primarily used with backend web frameworks such as Flask and Django. I work heavily in the backend, dev-ops, and infrastructure portion of many of my jobs and projects. That means I also mess around with Jenkins, Kubernetes, CI/CD, and all that fun jazz 🎷
I am also gaining traction on React and React Native to become more creative with building front end and full stack applications.
Aside from software, I enjoy playing/listening to music and hiking.
I'm actively trying to get better with React Native and this whole 'front end' craze. I'm not a super creative person when it comes to UI looks, but I enjoy creating something usable and nice looking from front to back.
I'm also trying to jump deeper into multi-node cluster automation. I've used Kubernetes for awhile now, but I want to go deeper and become a king at all things K8s 🤴🏼
projects and hacks
I spend most of my time with my robotics team, the [G-House Pirates](https://www.ghouse354.com/), but when I'm not cursing at a robot, I am probably messing around with Kubernetes, my personal project [Jingo](https://github.com/dstarner/jingo), or trying to build some hardware hack that is totally unnecessary.
I ❤️ mentoring, giving advice, or just talking to people. If you have any questions, I'll either try to answer it or figure it out with you. I enjoy mock interviewing, giving tips, solving problems, and really discussing anything you can think of!
I also enjoy hiking, the outdoors, boating, music, and racing, so I'm down to discuss any of those as well. 🗻🚤🎧🏎
Reach out for a quick chat, a new mentor, a small time contractor, or just for fun! I always try to be available.
