Hello 🙋‍♂️

My name is Ryan Johnson, and welcome to my personal and professional blog, where I discuss and record software engineering, computer science, information theory, technology, human-computer interaction (HCI), user interface design (UI/UX), philosophy, and related topics. My interests span many areas of science, so you may find an occasional random fun topic as well from the likes of genetics and health.

I own and operate the Sophis Tech computer repair and gamer service, and I sell 3D printed tools and art on Etsy, and photography-related equipment on Amazon.com.

I am always open to discuss and consider technical creative jobs, including software development, engineering, product development, web programming, Information Technology (IT) fields, and technical writing.

At my core, I am a problem-solver. I question tradition and challenge the status quo to find the best answers, not the easy answers. I believe the way to solve problems is through design and re-design, rather than ad-hoc workarounds and single-use solutions. A quote I think about often is:

“If you hate it, automate it!”
