Hi, I'm Derek!
I am a Software Engineer that thrives at the boundary between technology, business requirements, and the physical world. I enjoy working on systems and tangible products customers directly interact with.
I do not shy away from wearing the hat of both a developer and TPM as project requirements dictate and enjoy the opportunity to work closely with customers and project stake holders whenever possible.
I am passionate about technology, and enjoy working in a role that allows me to 'get out into the field' and collect buisness requirements, design and implement systems that benefit customers, and have a direct impact on the bottom-line of a company.
Here are some interesting facts about me:
- I enjoy both high and low-level software development
- My middle name is Bachelor and is descendant from family heritage
- I dabble in embeded development projects and robotics as a hobby
- I was declared 2006 Time Magazine's Person of the Year
- I like to travel and quite enjoy culinary arts
- I've recently been trying to switch my keyboard to a Colemak layout
While I have owned my domain name for quite some time, this website itself is relatively new. I've split it into two main sections: a blog and my professional profile. I plan to populate the blog portion of my website with everything from projects I may be working upon to articles and research I find interesting. The professional profile portion of my website is to be dedicated to outlining who I am and my credentials to any prospective employers. So go explore my website!
