Activities and Interests
I've often considered placing a portfolio of my work online, unfortunately the majority of my work is hosted internally and unavailable to the public. Therefore, I thought it would be beneficial to list technologies I am either interested in or which I actively participate. I do my best to keep these fresh, however please refer to my Resume or LinkedIn account for a full list of my experience.
