Hi, I'm Emerson (Em for short).
I'm a web and software developer living in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Professionally, I work for LaFleur Marketing, creating custom-built WordPress sites for our clients to increase their digital marketing capabilities. Before LaFleur, I worked as a Linux sysadmin, building and maintaining a hosting platform for over 120 WordPress sites, with a focus on speed and security. Before that, I was a frontend web dev.
Personally, I have a big interest in web accessibility, decentralization, security, and FOSS projects.
Currently, my biggest hobby is amateur radio. I'm a licensed operator, N8NG, and I spend most of my time on 40-20m FT8/FT4. My current setup is a ubitxv6 with a Doxytronics HF-319 magloop. For an apartment setup, it's not bad. I'm well over halfway to WAS on mixed digital, and from EN72 I get spotted occasionally in the EU.
