Heyo!
My name is Tom and I'm the Associate Director of Support and a Software Engineer at Crunchy Data.
Before now, I worked as a Building Technology Support Specialist at Penn Manor School District in Lancaster, Pennsylvania and before that, I graduated with a B.S. in Physics from The University of Scranton in 2011.
In my spare time, I enjoy building mechanical keyboards, writing things down with fancy fountain pens, making homemade hot sauces, modifying hardware, playing around with amateur radio, and experimenting with Software Defined Radio.
In terms of where I am on the internet (and off), you might have seen me involved with Lancaster-area Technology groups, such as TechLancaster, or giving one of many talks at CPOSC. I spend a lot of time working on tiny little projects, many of which are posted and available on my public GitHub page and I sometimes rant about technology on Twitter. I'm excited to be a part of the Lancaster area technology scene and I would love to hear from you.
Tom is the Associate Director of Support and a developer with Crunchy Data, providing techincal assistance to hundreds of large organizations and programming software for and around PostgreSQL databases. An avid speaker, he as participated in many years of Central Pennsylvania Open Source Conferences, TechLancaster events, and other events in and around Central Pennsylvania. He is an avid enthusiast of mechanical keyboards, amateur radio, and is a passionate advocate for free and open source software.
