I am the snarky science, technology, and environment-minded internet persona of F. Kyle Wright. I think of myself as a solutions architect who strives to connect users with technology and toolsets in simplified, meaningful, and more productive ways. I am an early adopter of enterprise technologies that drive cross-platform integration and collaboration. I foster agile-minded strategies to bridge corporate silos and bureaucratic obstacles.

Some of my recent highlights include web-based development of business process management (BPM) tools, workflow solutions, data warehousing, large-scale migrations, software management, and cross-functional resource management.

My other technical interests include systems engineering, networking, security, mobile/wireless, green technology, and systems management.

Me @ Park Butte in WA

Outside of the office, you will likely find me exploring the Pacific Northwest on foot, discovering new low-FODMAP recipes, making a mess of my kitchen (replicating those aforementioned recipes), enjoying new music, and otherwise keeping my geekdom credentials up-to-date.

I relocated to the Pacific Northwest in 2014 from Louisville, KY, where I completed my graduate degree in computer engineering at the University of Louisville’s J.B. Speed School of Engineering. In the subsequent years, I have focused on growing new roots in the greater Seattle area. I occasionally write about my hiking / travel adventures at shoulderseason.net.
