What I’m up to now

Updated 2018-02-18

  • I’m currently a Business Analyst at Logisolve. I’ve spent the past five years working with product owners and agile development teams to understand problems, define solutions, and keep communication flowing. I think my key strengths are analysis and technical communication.
  • Studying text processing with UNIX; getting familiar with tools like sed, awk, groff, and bash.
  • Studying typography and typesetting. Notable resources on this include Thinking with Type by Ellen Lupton and The Non-Designers Design Book by Robin Williams.
  • I’m slowly learning C from The C Programming Language, 2nd Edition by Kernighan and Ritchie.
  • Studying analytic tradecraft: intelligence analysis tactics, techniques, and procedures used within the United States Intelligence Community.
