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 Washington County Oregon as a Web System Adminstrator.
My core functions at Washington County are to keep the many web properties up and running and plan for the future while being mindful of our customers — the citizens of Washington County.
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.
