Hi, I'm Derek.
I've been around information systems since the early 1990's and consider myself a pretty well rounded technologist with a strength for efficiency and automation and a passion for making web applications.
During the day, I work for the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office as a Systems Project Analyst.
My core functions are to support, maintain, and develop programs and web applications for the administration and officers of the Sheriff's Office.
In My Free Time
I'm married to a beautiful goddess and father to four kick-ass boys.
When I'm not running, laughing, or playing, I develop freelance projects for small businesses, the open source community, and myself.
Finally, I run a small web agency called PixelNewt. This offers me an opportunity to stay engaged with the development community, interact with clients, and run a small business.
