Who am I?

Hello, I’m Elliot Sterk. I’m a professional software developer with experience in a variety of industries from finance to food-and-beverage to defense-tech. I like to find problems and solve them. In some of my earlier jobs, I’ve cleaned off popcorn stuck to movie theater seats and stacked hay in the middle of Big Sky Country, Montana.

My free time is filled with costume making, soldering, and reading. I am also available as a consultant for small businesses that need help managing and learning from customer sales data.
