18 years ago I started my own company, Gaucho Software. I’ve created my own apps, like Seasonality which has been written about in publications like the New York Times. I’ve also worked on contract-based jobs including the NCAA March Madness app, which won an Emmy. It has been a great ride, but recently I’ve been feeling like it’s time for a change.

Today I re-joined the corporate world and started a new full time position as a Senior Software Engineer at Doximity. I’ll be working on their iOS app for healthcare professionals. I’m excited to spend the next phase of my career helping make healthcare better.

I’m continually impressed with the Pro-100. It was bundled free with a DSLR I bought years ago. I’ve printed a ton of borderless 13×19 photos on it, and the print quality and longevity have been really good.

I’ve never had an ink cartridge dry out if I don’t use it for a few months, which I can’t say about any other inkjet I’ve owned. The cost of the ink is the only drawback, but compared with the rising cost of prints that’s less of an issue these days.


Sent some last-minute holiday prints to Walgreens, because an order from Adorama’s Printique or Bay Photo wouldn’t arrive in time. Half of them were ruined by the color correction Walgreens does while printing.

Ended up printing them on the Canon Pixma Pro-100 we have here at home and they turned out much nicer.


Took my daughters (9 and 12) to a Today at Apple session called Code Your First App. They loved it! Starts with a SwiftUI tab bar demo app in Swift Playgrounds and they spend an hour customizing and adding features. This isn’t the first time they’ve coded in Swift, but to see their eyes light up as their code change is updated on the canvas is priceless.

I was wondering why my IPsec VPN was so slow between two endpoints running pfSense. Ended up changing the MSS cap from the default 1400 down to 1350 and now I’m getting 10x the bandwidth.

Starting my day in the California desert where temps are in the 80s and ending it in the Rockies where temps are in the 40s. Can’t decide whether to wear shorts or pants.

Think I’ll go with shorts because this might be my last chance to wear them this season.

Here’s another one of my favorite shots from Yosemite a couple weeks ago. It’s a shot of Sentinel Bridge from the riverbed of the Merced. One reason I like it is because you can’t get this shot in the summer months when the river is full…you’d be in 3-4 feet of water.

Printed this one out to hang in the new house.
