Contact information at www.michaelriveraco.com (portfolio returning eventually soon). I'm not passionate about programming. I'm passionate about power and beauty. That I use programming to pursue these things is incidental. I'm not a rock star, ninja, or wizard. I'm a man and I'm diligent. I'm the author of the Cali Army Knife RubyGem at www.rubygems.org/gems/cknife, a set of command line tools including an AWS S3 command line interface and an SMTP command line mailer. I'm the creator and owner of www.mriveracrm.com, a CRM product, and www.quagress.com, a personal metric-tracking tool. My blog gets 120 hits a month. Sample Google search rankings: - "admitting unhappiness" (#1) - "red black trees python" (#3) - "ruby search tree balanced" (#6) - "scheme lisp sicp" (#11) Computer specs: 32GB RAM / 500GB SSD / dual 23 inch monitors. I have a Computer Science degree. I work hourly. I don't give estimates or set deadlines. Leaving me a voicemail by phone is the best way to get my attention (as soon as I put my contact info back).
