Currently I'm a Software Engineer working at 15Five. I deal mostly in backend working with Python+Django. I also work in frontend mainly with Vue.

I own an orchard and a small garden inspired by permaculture methods. I also enjoy cooking, baking and spending time with my wife, and we generally try to keep a simple life, by doing and making things ourselves.

Otherwise, I spend my time working on coding side projects related to whatever I'm interested in at the time. Most of them can be found here:

You can contact me at kyle [at] periks [dot] net. I try to stay off social media, but I use LinkedIn to prove that I exist professionally: LinkedIn.
