Education Domain Specific Language Python C Big Data Engineer Full time

Data engineer, data warehouse architect with experience coding a hodgepodge of languages (C, C#, Python, R, Perl, Bash, JavaScript, and weird stuff like Prolog and Icon) seeks to grow the Cardano ecosystem.

In addition to being a general coder, systems, and data person, I served as a web technical administrator and spent many hours writing things like Apache plug-ins.  I also have background Linux systems administration (CentOS, RedHat, and Ubuntu), in IT security/Splunk.  And I possess formal linguistic training, as well as experience constructing parser generators, regular expression engines, and just a lot of "stuff."

Here's the thing, though:  I'm not just a back-room tech.  I can also write and communicate at a number of different levels and bridge communication gaps--having written a variety of both popular and refereed academic articles.

I am easily Googled, having been working in IT since the mid 90s.

I'm looking to help out and do something meaningful.
