Hi, and thanks for reading! I’m J.W. Koebel and I’m a technologist based out of Seattle. On weekdays during business hours, I’m a project manager helping clients adopt enterprise human resources automation software. It’s a great product. The rest of the time you’ll find me working on technology projects of all kinds and writing about the results here on my blog. If you’re looking for more info on my career, there’s a LinkedIn button on the right – this blog is dedicated to everything else that’s going on in my life. Feel free to send me questions and comments to “jkoebel (@) gmail (.) com” and if you use GPG/PGP, I have a Public Key linked and attached to the About Me text at the top of this page if you’d like to send me a secure message.
I stay active juggling a bunch of projects that probably involve electricity in some way with enjoying all the natural beauty the Pacific Northwest has to offer. I fix up antique tube radios for my private collection and for clients, salvage/repair/recycle more modern electronics, create interesting IT projects on my own, build things, make things, and document it all. There’s also biking, hiking, scuba diving and skiing. If I find a way to combine the two different sets of hobbies, it will definitely be featured in an article.
Feel free to leave a comment on any page, and to visit any of the profiles in my sidebar.
