This site was built as a static single page app using Material Design Bootstrap, React, and GatsbyJS. The app is deployed to Netlify on a serverless architecture from a private Github Repository as well as concurrently building and pushing a docker image to a public repository on Docker Hub
I believe in enjoying life and the importance of being in the the moment so I aim to live with a sense of adventure. I am not afraid of failure so by extending myself beyond my level of comfort in a controlled manner. I am always pushing to learn continuously through direct experience. I enjoy learning as much as I can and living as an gift and treasure to be enjoyed because to me my memories are more precious than luxurious material possessions which seem to come and go with the ebb and flow of time. Each day truly brings about new opportunities for education and adventures which should be seized upon in fulfillment of a well lived and meaningful existence.
Philosophy is very important to me. Throughout my life I have struggled for purpose and sought for meaning as we all must and within that struggle I have found that the only true meaning I have garnered and which brings me a happy and purposeful existence is a dedication to responsibility and stewardship. I firmly believe in assisting others, sharing, teaching, and generally leaving things in a better state than when I first encounter them. I feel that by our very existence we are burdened with this task and that it is instrumental to self fulfillment. Experience has taught me that you always get back more than you give away and so I am driven by this underpinning to work hard in dedicated to life long learning.
