Hi, my name is Roy
I'm a freelance software developer, solution architect, and technical consultant, with over 15 years for experience. If you have interesting work for me, you can check out my resume.
I have a bunch of stuff here. Look around, maybe you'll find something that interests you.
There's the blog, where I write about things like software development, Magic the Gathering, gaming, movies, tv, books, and tech life. I also write weeknotes, which are more of personal updates, but also sometimes include links I find interesting. Here are some of my favorite posts.
There's also a notes page, which is more like shorter, day-to-day microblog entries. A lot of my other activities on platformss are also syndicated back here as notes.
There's a links page, where I share various links of interest.
There's a photos page, which is just all the images and videos publicly available on the site (and via my social media stuff, etc). Liberally sprinkled with memes and gaming screenshots. I also do this daily sketching thing, which I collect in an sketchbook album.
There's some other stuff around as well. I don't really know how to link to everything, so I made an explore page.
I am open to talking to strangers! Or friends even! Feel free to contact me.
