About

Thanks for stopping by, and sorry if you are one of the people that hate full page splash images with no info. I often use my personal site to play with new technologies and ideas that I am using or want to use in the near future.

Did you notice that the main landing was using the CSS Grid layout? It is, and the grid layout is very cool, I'm working on a more advanced usage in the future. If you didn't see that you likely got an absolutely position box, and that's ok too. Anyway, let's get into more about me.

Here is my html based resume and pdf based resume. It was made using a JSON parser called JSON Resume, really cool concept.

Here are links to things people like to see.

My current favorite personal project to work on is MMA Theory. I created a site to analyze mixed martial arts results and see what connections can be made from the data. It uses MongoDB and JS to make things happen.

If you want to know more about me you can read on, or send me a message. I like to talk about all sorts of things.

Cryptocurrency

I have been learning more about block chain and cryptocurrency as a whole. My favorite coins at the moment are Monero (XMR) and Aeon. They are both based on the same code base with Aeon being a light weight version of Monero. If you want to talk about it more, I'd love to, send me a message.

monero
  • CPU or GPU Based Mining
  • Built in privacy - RingCT and Stealth Addresses
  • Fungible, because it's not traceable it cannot be blacklisted
  • Future ability to replace advertisements on website with CPU opt in mining
bitcoin
  • More Widely Adopted
  • Mainly done by ASIC Miners
  • Opt in privacy - only used about 20% of the time
  • Ability for currency to be tracked and blacklisted
And if you want to be a real team player, let me use a little of your CPU power to mine some Monero while you browse my site. If you decide to opt in, the mining will stop as soon as you close the window/tab or press pause.

Some Ideas I have been playing with

After the 2016 Olympic games there was a discussion about when and if women would be able to catch up to men in their performances. What I did was analyze the times of men and women over time to see what the difference was and when they were equal.

Have you ever wondered how much a day is worth? Well philosophically you could say the current day is worth everything, and so on. But each day is a different percentage of each persons life as they age. When you are born your first day is 100% of your life, second day 50% and so on. I wrote a handy script to calculate it based on your birthday.

During a drive I heard the phrase, for the who knows how many times, "That's worth it's weight in gold." But is it? Based on the current price of gold - you can put in any item, it's weight, and price to determine if it is.

Photography

In my previous career I worked as an event, wedding, and corporate photographer for 10 years in New York City. I covered events such as NY Fashion Week, Super Bowl, Oscars, VMAs, and basically anything else you can think of. I also worked as the in house photographer for the New York Stock exchange for several years before changing careers.

Shirts

I have been playing around with some shirt designs using amazon merch. I've got some way more neat ones pending approval, stay tuned.
