Greetings! I’m Peat, and I do a considerable amount of consulting and contracting with web oriented startups. I’m a geek, a photographer, a speaker, an entrepreneur, an author, and a collector of odd hobbies.
I’ve worked with several start-up companies, providing project management and development for sophisticated web applications, including social travel sites, community blogging tools, scalable 1M+ hit/day clusters, media distribution tools, and business process management systems. Amongst other things.
When I’m not working I enjoy travelling, photography, and collecting paper money. I also hang out with the Portland Ruby Brigade, the Portland Web Innovators, partake in Legion of Tech events (BarCamp, Ignite), and have been known to participate seasonal board sports (snow, surf, and skate). I also have a rather long standing fascination with rocketry.
I currently live in Portland, Oregon with The Wife, two cats, and a particularly wonderful baby boy.
