Cool quote that I live by:
A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.
-Robert A. Heinlein
Currently seeking employment in a technology related field
2016 – Current I spent time self educating on projects related to robotics and technology. Study includes math, coding, circuit board design and manufacture, additive and subtractive manufacturing, actuation, web design and the list could go on.
2011-2016 I was self employed as a general contractor performing commercial and industrial work. Jobs ranged in size from service calls to $300,000.00
2009-2011 I was employed as a project manager and estimator for a commercial construction company.
2007-2009 I was self employed doing odd jobs and reselling.
My short term goals:
-Advance my skills. Machine learning and eventually crypto/smart contracts are upcoming
-I have a long term robotics project that I am working on
Practical Skill set:
Machine Learning – I am very interested in machine learning and am studying math/statistics. I have been mostly using dl4j but also have tensorflow installed for benchmarking the many examples available.
Coding OOP – Java, C++, C#, PHP, python – I feel very comfortable coding in these languages although being perishable skillsets I do need to brush up if I stop using them for some time. I would suspect I can learn most languages in a reasonably short period of time. (playstore) (stackoverflow) (Github)
Related Tech – SQL/Data persistence, XML, JSON, Git, FTP, csv, CMD Line, wireless – Maybe it goes without saying but I use a wide variety of tools to manage the data I work with. Custom commands line installs are no problem.
Web development/ Writing – I used to run a few small websites. I also have a youtube channel. Reading and watching a lot of other peoples content inspires me to produce my own and I am working on those skills day by day.
Electrical Systems – AC power service. DC power. Circuit boards. microprocessors.
CAD/Software – I use a variety of design software. I can model basically anything and get it into gcode.
Machining/Manufacturing – Machining, PCB, 3d print, mold making, vacuum casting, assembly
Problem Solving/ Prevention – Researching, critical thinking, documentation & Code Organization
Estimating and Project Management – Estimating experience revolves around reviewing plans or customers verbal explanations of construction projects. Storing and maintaining previous estimates and job files for reference. Using square foot, time and material and vendor pricing to prepare construction proposals. Planning project timelines and then organizing resources around that plan. Supervising and managing the project as well as managing peoples expectations as the project moves forward. Finishing the project and collecting payment.
Skilled Trade/Craft – I have worked in every position across the 16 division CSI starting at the bottom as a sweeper/trash removal to running a small construction business. I had a custom built work truck that I made myself. I stocked it with common odds and ends and at least some of the basic tools needed in every single trade. I was 100% about being prepared. You can get a sense of what I did in this post. http://cagneymoreau.com/project-recaps/
Valuation, Negotiation & Investing – Investments, Contracts & Negotiations. I was a weird kid and always really into reading about history. History is closely tied to the story of money and money is often the unseen fulcrum of events. In the “post fundamentals matter” epoch I can’t claim to be an expert. But I am very knowledgeable and very interested in how capital, in all its forms, moves through the economy.
Vector Art / Graphics or Video – I’m not an amazing artist but due to sheer necessity I can generate all kinds of basic media for apps and web.
I consider myself an independent person in a world where so many opinions are often less based on fact and more on the popular opinions being pressed by the mass of swarming people around us. To relax I thoroughly enjoy outdoor recreation and other living choices I perceive as better for my physical and mental health. This includes fishing, gardening and other boring activities. The qualities I like most in other people and seek to provide myself is curiosity, magnanimity and discipline.
