Hi, I'm Sean Reiser, a 48 year old New York City based technologist. I have spent the past 25 years working as a programmer, system architect and development manager for a number companies. In the past I mainly with financial firms and media companies, these days I spend more time as an independent contractor. For lack of a better description, I consider myself a bit mason. You see, I come from a family of brick masons who used trowels to shape bricks and mortar into buildings. To continue the family tradition, I sit at my shiny computer and use Drupal, PHP, HTML, and CSS to shape bits into websites. I feel blessed to have found a career that I enjoy and find challenging while I provide value to others.

Whether in front of a computer or not, I'm what the average person would consider a geek (I know the bowtie was your first clue). I tend to spend what little free time I have spending time with friends, reading, practicing my photography and the like. My goal is an hour of non-work related reading a day and to get though a book a week, on any number of topics from fiction, to politics, to security. I am a science fiction fan and enjoy everything from Star Wars to Asimov. I particularly geek out over Doctor Who.
