Hello, I’m Jesse B. Crawford.
I'm a Linux system administrator and information security analyst in beautiful Albuquerque, New Mexico. I'm interested in security, computer history, transportation and infrastructure technology, and in general more things than I can list. You can get in touch or read my resume, and I also write essays and collect all kinds of information related to my interests.
I've worked as a system administrator for several organizations, a security analyst for the Federal Reserve System, and occasionally even as a software engineer. Currently, I'm working as a computer infrastructure engineer for a major organization. My education, consisting of a BS in Information Technology from New Mexico Tech, has led me to enjoy working in the interface between technology and business, as well as the highly technical work that much of my career has focused on.
I volunteer with the American Red Cross's Disaster Services division and various causes in the areas of LGBT issues and K-12 STEM education, and take almost every opportunity to ramble before large (and small) groups about computer history and other topics. I'm also an amateur radio hobbyist and an avid fan of the endless desert.
I grew up in Portland, Oregon, and have spent my adult life in New Mexico, with various periods in San Francisco and Virginia. I'm not sure there's anywhere in the country I dislike, but of all the places I like, I like the southwest the most. As often as possible, I road trip across the rest of the country, sometimes taking photos along the way. Mostly photos of trains, though.
