What I'm doing now

I’m at home in Dayton Ohio. The weather is warm, the flowers have bloomed, and I’m spending more time outdoors (mostly walking, biking, and doing yard work).

At Work

I’m over a year into my remote Software Engineering position at Formidable. I feel very fortunate to be here a time when the industry has been contracting a bit. For the last few months I’ve been building out a GraphQL API using Apollo and Node. It’s been interesting working on backend code after several years of doing frontend. There’s always something new to learn.

At Home

I’ve been getting more into health and fitness recently. In February I started listening to the Huberman Lab podcast, measuring body fat, tracking calories, eating more protein, and weight-lifting twice a week. I’ve never really focused on this kind of stuff in the past so it’s taught me a lot about food and exercise. Over the past year, my bench press max has increased from 140 to 195 lbs (I have a goal to bench 200). It feels pretty good to be “the strongest I’ve ever been.” 🏋️‍♂️

I’ve been easing back into side projects and blogging. I recently gave a talk at Dayton Web Developers about augmented programming using AI tools (recording here, slides here). I have more things I want to do but I’ll probably be taking it slow. Family comes first!
