Hi there! I'm Scott. I recently completed my Computer Science degree from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.
I'm a Software Development Engineer by day at Apple, and in my spare time I enjoy tinkering with my homelab - a collection of over 25 machines including vintage and contemporary Apple, Sun SPARC, pc hardware, networking gear, and VoIP tech.
I'm also an amateur radio operator — catch me on the CPARC repeater, I'm KK6SEU. I'm not afraid of a soldering iron, and am constantly working on some electronics project or another, including an 8-bit 6502 homebrew computer.
If you'd like, my résumé and a link to my Github profile is available below.
