About Me

Hi. I’m Steve Wamsley, a St. Louis based web developer with interests in music, running, cycling, and electronics. This is my personal web site. I currently work for jWeb Media as a senior web developer / architect specializing in Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP (LAMP) as well as HTML, CSS, and JavaScript and mobile iOS and Android application development.

Music

In addition to my computer related work, I keep myself busy as a semi-professional violist. I studied viola my whole life, attaining a bachelor of music degree from the University of Southern California in 1994. More recently, I play in the St. Louis Philharmonic Orchestra and the Gateway Festival Orchestra and freelance in small ensembles around the Greater St. Louis area.

Fitness

I consider myself somewhat of a fitness enthusiast. I ran cross country in high school and carried that over into adult life to maintain my fitness level. I try to run at least two half-marathons a year as well as other shorter distance events. I started studying martial arts as an adult achieving a black belt in tae kwon do.

Electronics

I dabble with electronics. More recently I’ve been intrigued with controlling stepper motors with micro-controllers such as the Arduino. Some day I would like to be an amateur radio operator.
