My name is George and this website is my personal blog. I use it as a platform to talk about the myriad of things that interest me. Both as a software engineer and snowboarding enthusiast.
I am a passionate and self-driven problem solver with over 14 years of professional experience developing software. Possessing the skill sets to effectively step-up as a leader and mentor, while remaining a strong individual contributor. All while making numerous contributions to open source projects such as Django, Chef Habitat, jQuery, and SaltStack.
Outside of computers, I like to get out and hit the slopes! The majority of the photos on this site were taken by myself during my adventures. The types of snowboarding I enjoy most are freeriding and boardercross.
Things I generally enjoy writing about are my personal projects as well as some professional ones (given permission). The majority of my personal projects consist of hardware hacking and learning new technologies. I have developed a lot of personal projects in the Rust Programming Language and like to use the knowledge gained to mentor others.
My journey into systems programming using Rust, has also lead me into learning about microcontrollers and FPGAs. So there will occasionally be posts covering projects that target AVR and Xtensa ISAs.
