About Me

I am Max Fierke. I write software. I eat Stroopwafel. I enjoy trains.

Twin Cities born & raised, I live in Minneapolis, MN. I work-in-place as a Software Engineer for Boston-based startup Iora Health that delivers an amazing care experience for patients. However, the views and bad attempts at humor expressed on this site are my own.

I am well-versed in many of the below technology buzzwords and can even prove it upon request. You should git checkout my GitHub, where I store several of my prized codes. In my free time, I'm also fond of Linux kernel hacking, reverse engineering, poking fun at things, playing around with new infrastructure automation tools, and over-engineering my home network for funsies.
