I’m : a programmer, writer, podcaster, geek, and coffee enthusiast.


My dream guy’s wife looks like me.

That’s the worst!

At a previous job, I worked my ass off to try to earn more respect from the bosses. They recognized my skills, but no matter how well I did, I was always viewed as a young guy with no experience and no Ph.D. and therefore I couldn’t be trusted with any real responsibility or advanced projects.

Once, they were discussing (within earshot) the need to hire for a “senior” programming position.

They actually said, “We need someone like Marco, but older.”
