I'm Michael Kale, your host here. I was a stay at home Dad who makes mobile applications when the little guy is napping. But now I work for a BigCo again as a software developer. I was born in L.A., raised in Oregon, spent my 20s and early 30s in Seattle and, to complete the circle, moved with my family to San Diego in September 2010 for my wife's job. In December 2012, we moved back to Oregon -- the trees just weren't the right shade of green anywhere else.

In my copious spare time, I like to read, run, bike, hike, take photos, make ridiculously hoppy homebrewed beer, play cards and other games, build things, and any geeky project.

Here I am in my natural work environment:
