Hello imaginary readers!
My name is James Brown (known online as
Roguelazer since some time before the turn of the millenium).
Once upon a time, I was a student at Harvey Mudd College, a magical engineering school in
Before that, I grew up in Fall River, Massachusetts.
Nowadays, I live in Berkeley, California with my wife and toddler.
I currently work for Instrumentl building software for
nonprofits to manage grants.
I did stints at Google, Yelp, Uber, and EasyPost before that.
I've been pinging around the Internet for a few decades.
Usual caveat applies: my views are not those of my employers, and my employers' views sure aren't my own.
I'm not on the market for a new job right now, but I do keep a resume up at resume.pdf if you're curious.
This is at least the fifth incarnation of this website, depending on how you count the times that it's been just a blog. It's currently a bunch of of Markdown files processed by Pelican. It shares some configuration with the family website that my wife and I share at brown-delair.net.
If you're really super-bored, I have a list of old computers that I've used over the years.
You can generally contact me at email@example.com. You can also find me on libera.chat and slashnet as @roguelazer. Or, really, any of the social media sites in the sidebar. If you would like to communicate with me securely, you can find my PGP key at roguelazer.asc.
