If you’d like to see a more structured overview of my professional and academic history, check out my LinkedIn Profile. Otherwise, read on for a more free-form overview.
I am currently a partner at Aclima, where I write backend systems for distributed sensor networks.
Previously, I co-founded Pathwright in 2010, and was there until March of 2015.
I attended Clemson University and received a B.S. in Graphic Communications, which I’ll crudely summarize as the science of all things visual, with a heavy lean towards the print industry. My particular emphasis was color science. During my stay at the university, I wrote software that would later be employed in a commercial, production setting. If you have been to McDonald’s, you have probably touched products that were color-checked by my software. Several of my other projects, such as the Color Error Threshold Calculator are still used for teaching color theory at Clemson today.
Earlier in my college career, I spent time at the Clemson Geographic Information Science lab as an embedded software developer. I assisted with the assembly, configuration, and development of our very small Linux gateway machines for field deployments. Our particular area of emphasis was wireless mesh networks, used to measure water quality over time.
I completed two internships: One at International Paper (the largest paper and pulp provider in the world), and GTECH Printing, a large international lottery ticket printer. The former was a mixture of software development and pre-press, while the latter was entirely software development (working on the software that my first small business would later sell).
