Welcome to the Homepage of Joe Pepersack, Systems Architect and Photographer

Software Engineering

I have spent my entire adult life working in the software business, in both software development and systems operations. I'm a passionate advocate for, and user of, Open Source software.

Most of my current projects are being done with Perl and Hadoop. I'm also doing extensive work with non-relational databases, primarily Hbase.

I am presently seeking permanent employement as a Systems Architect or a comparable hands-on technical leadership role in either software development or systems operations. Please check out my resume if you are recruiting for such a position.

While I've dabbled in photography since my early teens, I didn't begin pursuing it in earnest until 2007.

The technical aspects of photography come to me very naturally. Given this, it may seem counter-intuitive that I have chosen to specialize in the fine art genre. I chose this path specifically because it is a challenge and forces me to work outside my comfort zone.

I am available for hire to select clients for portrait, product, and real estate photography. I do not do wedding or event photography, but I will be happy to give you a referral to someone who does.

Social Networking

I tend to be a very private person, and my time for updating this site is limited, so you won't find much personal information about me here. I do have a presence on several social networks, and you are welcome to connect with me there if you wish.
