Who is Parnell?

My name is Parnell Springmeyer; I am an autodidact and a maker. This website is my long-form, written interface with the internet; a platform for practicing my writing and externalizing ideas.

I enjoy reading, writing software, and olympic weightlifting. I also love spending my time with warm people, cooking and eating meals and talking about interesting topics.

Professionally, I've worked on startups for the last nine years: A couple of my own and a few, other people's. Currently I write Haskell and Nix for Awake Security. My experience spans low-level systems firmware and custom Linux root filesystems, distributed and highly-available systems, designing and building software for internet connected devices to web application development.

Many of my projects are on GitHub.
