Bio/Description

I’m an engineer based in Los Angeles. I run an engineering consulting firm as well as a talent management shop and publishing company called Boffo Socko Books.

With WordPress I help authors, writers, and academics create platforms for disseminating and publicizing their work. I’m an ardent proponent of the IndieWeb movement (http://indieweb.org) and am the organizer of the Los Angeles local Homebrew Website Club as well as the IndieWebCamp LA 2016.

Interests

IndieWeb.org, abstract mathematics, information theory, microbiology, reading, mountain biking, linguistics, big history, economics
