Hello and welcome to my blog. My name is Chris Wahl and I founded this site in 2010 as a quiet place to write down thoughts on various technical challenges with little concern over posting schedules and who would actually read what I wrote. Over the years, I discovered that I have a strong desire to write and express my opinion, which lead me to elevate this blog into a regular endeavor with a focus on useful technologies, design challenges, and discovering new products and solutions. To my surprise, people actually stumbled upon this site to read my rambling.

Hiking and World Travel

I spend a lot of personal time seeking out long, remote trails to hike and backpack. The escape from electronics and digital overload is a nice relief and something I need to remain sane. Related to this is my passion for world travel and teasing out those little gem experiences that continue to expand my understanding of how we can all get along on this floating orb of wonder. Fortunately, these two hobbies blend well together.

Machu Picchu (2019) was a major bucket-list hike.
Carter Notch (2016) is a high mountain pass through the White Mountains of New Hampshire.

Annual Goals

I record my goals to help measure growth and progress and publish them to keep myself honest.

2022 Goals

  • Be an effective leader and mentor to my peers.
  • Be an effective technologist.
  • Write carefully and with purpose.
  • Live a healthy, balanced lifestyle.
  • Spend quality time with family and friends.

Curriculum Vitae (CV)

I’ve worked as a technical professional in a variety of roles since 1999. I received a Bachelor of Science in Network and Communications Management in 2005 and a Master of Business Administration (MBA) in 2009. The aim was to blend a mixture of technical and business educational investments.
