Hi, I’m Steven Pate, a software engineer from Houston, Texas. I created LAAC Technology to brand my technology projects including products, open source, presentations, and my blog.
I grew up in Houston, Texas and love it even though it’s ugly. Houston has a great food scene, and I love trying new cuisine. I really like pumpkin flavored stuff, especially pumpkin stout beer. My wife thinks I’m basic, but I think it’s just good taste. I play a little guitar, mostly major chords. I listen to all music, but I really love progressive metal, especially Periphery, Between the Buried and Me, Animals as Leaders, and Protest the Hero. I had a mohawk in my younger years. Houston gets really hot, and I like to hang out by the pool. I unofficially broke the longest distance tiddlywinked in 24 hours world record but lost it due to a technicality. I play a lot of video games. Feel free to reach out. I try to be as responsive as possible.
