Born Geek Photography

My personal photos live on their own sub-domain here at Born Geek. The software I use to power my photo album, which I have lovingly dubbed “Monkey Album”, is a custom creation. It is written using PHP and MySQL and is, to some extent, modeled after a third-party album package I once employed. I consider Monkey Album to be a work in progress, so don’t be surprised if you eventually see a new feature or two.

About Jonah Bishop

I currently work for Lenovo where I write test tools to validate their x86 server hardware. Previously, I worked for the same group at IBM (our division was sold by IBM to Lenovo). In 2014 I married a very lovely lady, with whom I enjoy spending my time. Programming is a hobby of mine, though I don’t program for pleasure as often as I once did. I enjoy writing code in Perl and PHP, though I’m versed in a number of languages. Several of my non-computing related interests include photography, music, and visiting North Carolina’s many state parks.
