A Little About Me

Howdy stranger, my name is Ray. I'm a modern computer nerd that does a lot of tinkering in my spare time.

My latest hobby is photography. It's a fun and artistic obsession.

Sometimes I dabble in a little bit of web design. I believe in clean handmade web development. I don't use WYSIWYG editors or default templates. The result is a clean, fast loading website with minimal load times and extreme attention to detail.

From time to time I write software or do linux admin work. I'm a voip enthusiast. I love building phone systems with Asterisk, an open source voice over IP platform.

I've lived in a number of places, including Afghanistan.

I've built storm a storm shelter, for under $300, using rammed earthbags. In the process I moved 15 tons of dirt and lost 50lbs. [Construction Gallery]

I'm addicted to bacon.

I'm always looking for opportunities to do new and interesting things.
