Wow, it's been over 5 years since my last blog entry..


I'm done with school now and have a B.S. in Computer Science (BSCS). It's refreshing to not have to go to school and take exams anymore!


Life has been quite hectic lately.. Last year, I had several surgeries and broke my wrist which required several orthopedic surgeries. I ended up being on disability leave from work for a while =\

The tail end of last year was great as Diana, my love, and I got married on October 9th, 2008.

Right now I'm looking for a software engineering gig, so if you're an employer and need a Linux specialist who is a C/C++ software engineer, maybe you should email me and I'll get you my resume =)


Throughout my time at UCSC, I worked at Packet Design during the summers and part-time all school year. I had a good 4 years there working on their software in C++ as well as writing serial console and web GUIs in Perl for their appliances until a Google recruiter eyed me open for an SRE (Site Reliability Engineering) position which I foolishly took when it was finally offered after the interview process. The job had little to do with software engineering, was more of a bunch of administrative number crunching/planning and IT/SysOps work. After nearly two years I said enough is enough and am now seeking a better career path.


Haven't had any time throughout college to really hack on any free software projects. We abandoned thinksynth sometime in 2004 or so. I got to write a lot of cool code in some of my college classes but nothing too exciting/new in the free software world.
