Hello, my friends,

When people are together listening to the same music, it inclines to make their brains synch up in rhythmic ways, prompting a shared emotional experience. Music works in much the same way language works—using a combination of sound and dynamic variations to impart a certain understanding in the listener.

That’s how I see my work with Seattle Wave Radio. Meaning, comparable to musicians who are always striving to be fresh and innovative, I am always curious and love to learn by staying on top of the latest trends in software engineering. I experiment with new languages and keep up my grasp of programming using different algorithms or data structures.

Again, similar to musicians, I feel a personal sense of investment and pride in bringing the best quality to their fans/audience. In the same way it is for me to bring the best quality to the listeners on the SWR radio stream and those visiting the SWR website, or using the SWR APP. There is shared pride in our craftsmanship and authorship.

So, yes, I can pull off heroic feats of code-slinging, but I am not the pop culture stereotype of the brilliant but emotionally stunted programmer because I love connecting people around me to the universal language of music.


My Favorite Quote

“Any fool can write code that a computer can understand. Good programmers write code that humans can understand.”
— Martin Fowler

In other words, as a developer/programmer my work isn’t just to make things work, but to make things make sense.
