What I'm Doing Now

(This is a now page, and if you have your own site, you could make one, too!)

Day Job

I started at TalentNet back in August of 2020. Loving the job, loving the team, super happy there. Working on Full stack w/ Node, Symfony, Containers, AWS, and all kinds of stuff! Diving into App Sec and generally leveling up as a developer.

Volunteer Work

I've been helping the brilliant and oh-so-active Mrs. H with BSidesRDU by rebuilding and updating their website, logos, graphics, and social media assets.

Side Hustle

Still building the side thing. It's been super slow going, but I'm making occasional progress. Trying to get it into a demo-able state. Between that and my one favorite client of all time who I'm working with again, lately, I can't take other work right now; sorry.

Married Life

I got married in 2020 at the beginning of the pandemic in a very socially distanced ceremony w/ a live stream for everyone out of town. I love my wife like crazy. Married life is awesome the second time around. I once read somewhere that, "she's better because you're better." Well, yeah, maybe I'm a little better this time around, but she's defintely the way better person between the two of us. It's going great. We live in Durham, NC w/ our 2 dogs, Cortana & Toph (yes, named after Halo 3 and Avatar, the Last Air Bender).

Helping the Mrs. w/ School

In addition to her many other activities, my wife is working her way through a degree in cyber security to add to her many certifications, so I try to help her find time for that. I mostly bring her coffee and remind her not to stay up all night.

Learning All Kinds of Things

Through the day job, night time tutorials & books, and every now and then the side hustle, I've been learning as much as possible about all kinds of stuff, but especially NuxtJS, VueJS, Advanced CSS, SaSS/SCSS, always more JavaScript, AWS, Containers, Laravel 8, NodeJS, CD/CI, Jamstack, etc. etc.!
