With buildings, an architect blends beauty and function under the constraint of budget and physics into a building design (at least that's what she does in my mind). This is the model I have for developing products that rely on software.
My programming career has focused on embedded systems. Fortunately, this has allowed me to dabble in a full stack of electronics design, real-time OS, Linux kernel drivers, Linux applications, and browser applications.
My interests also include entrepreneurship, leadership, finance, project management, cooking, and the occasional handyman home project.
