Programmer for hire


  So last Wednesday, my company laid off a huge swath of its employees.  I was one of them.
  It was a bit sudden but the company had been having trouble over the past year so I wasn't surprised that it happened, just the timing.

  I'm still trying to right the ship a bit and get on the job hunt.

  If you're curious, I do software programming, mostly on the Microsoft stack, with a couple of different Java frameworks under my belt.  We can certainly talk if you think there's a position I might be a good fit for.



Bucket List -- See the Inca in DC


So last week, I took a very short trip down to DC to cross off a long-standing bucket list item -- taking in the Inca Road exhibit at the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington DC (it's part of the Smithsonian).

And that was pretty much it -- I went back to the hotel, got some supper and prepped to fly home the next morning. It was a short trip but a lot of fun. I'm glad I went.
