Get To Know Me
I spend my days tinkering on anything and everything. I enjoy fixing things that are broken, and breaking things that are fixed. I thrive on turning my thoughts and ideas into reality. I escape reality with good stories and entertainment. I endulge occasionally with a good cigar and a glass of Islay. I seek new knowledge and skills, and gladly pass them onto others.
This website is meant to be an extension of all of this - my thoughts, ideas, creative works, and sharing knowledge with others.
I am John Bradley, and you can get in touch with me via email.
The Work I Do
Technology in education has become a passion of mine for years now. I believe education is key for a better Mississippi, and society as a whole, and technology is one of the few avenues that can advance it. Starting in K-12, working with my father, who’s been in the field for over 2 decades, I’ve moved up to higher-education and have explored what has interested me. Now, I’m a systems programmer at Mississippi State University, developing tools for my own convenience and the convenience of my co-workers, to help with the task of sustained network up-time, keeping everybody’s data safe, and providing a better experience for students and faculty.
