This used to be a succinct and somewhat terse (if not a little bit funny) blurb about who I am. No more. Gone are the days of brevity and simplicity. Farewell to sanity and cleanliness.
In all seriousness, I thought it might be useful to have a little bit of work experience listed here. Also, it will be a place for me to keep track of what I’ve done for my own personal recollection.
