I'm a 43 year old male with American and French citizenship currently living in Orléans France. I specialize in two dimensional visual information. I'm a visual artist, graphic designer, computer programmer, webmaster, wine enthusiast, lover of music, self motivated creator and have a generally inoffensive disposition. I've lived in Portland Oregon, Burlington Vermont and Paris France. I'm currently working on a body of visual art (mixed media work) which I hope to find a gallery for in the near future. Thank you for visiting my website.

This website was created from scratch. All requests for content are served by an application written in Python which uses python-wsgi under an Apache server. The content is derived from a real-time (not cached) programmatic traversal of a filesystem node on the server ('(webroot)/static/*').
The traversal data is stored in JSON to preserve it's inherent file/folder heirarchy. The depth of the traversal is scoped to the requested filesystem node. The app in turn parses the JSON to HTML. A custom templating laguage is used to inject the parsed HTML content into HTML/CSS views. A minimal amount of jQuery is used to generate images from the HTML source linkages as the user scrolls down the page. It's a good system for passive loading of a site with a fair deal of image bandwidth. Tracking analytics are run by the app and datum are stored using a MongoDB instance.
All files in the app use GIT for version control.
Domains and Sites are hosted by http://Gandi.net(FR). My server is in Baltimore, MD(USA) but apparently according to gandi, I'll need to move that to one of the european servers by the end of the summer 2016.
I'm always looking for work if the cause is right. Someone once called me smart.
