About The C Shore
For some history of public projects I’ve worked you can look at the cshore-history ‘organization’ on GitHub.
I’ve had quite an interesting (read challenging) life and managed to do some pretty good work despite all of that. I plan to find a way to incorporate my struggles with mental illness into this site, although I am mostly focused on things like firmware development, web development, work history, and the various professional and hobby things that are what far too many folks see as the only things that make a person’s life valuable or matter. This isn’t a standard portfolio site, but will show my work, and contrast that with how thinking goes awry when a major mental illness develops, and one has not yet found the right medical treatment combined with therapy to overcome the difficulties due to a neurobiological disorder.
I am an early digital native (since the 80’s, while I was in public school). I had the opportunity to work with Commodore 64’s even in the Grade 6 to 8, and was working on an exotic assembly language program before I was in Grade 9. This passion for technology one of the reason’s I am happy the Midland Public Library now has the MakerPlace.
Currently I’m learning new skills in web development and am working on some interesting firmware and admin projects on my hobby / personal sysadmin roster as part of getting back on track after illness. I seem to be making a good recovery, and I’m hoping that in the medium term I can launch a successful company creating a unique device that will help those concerned about their privacy but want the benefits of ‘the cloud’.
