This is AJ Ferrick. This site has been up-and-down for the last few years, but I'm trying to revive it more permanently. I lost my previous content to a corrupted hard drive...so here we are: running up the hill again.
I tweet, track my listening habits, write code sometimes, and track my identity with Keybase. You can reach me over email at email@example.com. Encrypted communication is also welcome, and you can find my public key here.
I used to work for a news company called Circa. I worked on our backend systems: APIs, data, internal tooling, and probably more. Everything that didn't show up on a phone. Circa, as you probably once knew it, is now defunct. I moved over with most of my team to The Daily Dot, which is full of very interesting people and cool coworkers.
I graduated from Case Western's Control Systems engineering program in 2011 and Stanford's Management Science masters program in 2014. My experience with the MS&E department seems out-of-place — overall it was a positive experience, but my feelings are conflicted enough not to cover here. Maybe over beer.
I still volunteer at KZSU Stanford 90.1 FM. I do a bunch of things there: DJing, live audio production, trying to keep the computers running. It's a good place and has been important to me.
This website runs on a simple stack: Jekyll, git, nginx, all on DigitalOcean.
