About Me
what did you want to know?

My name is Christopher O'Brien, but I typically go by the monicker ‘siege.’ The story behind this nickname is significantly less interesting than you might imagine.

I am the proud father of a beautiful little girl named Zoe. She loves riding her bike and playing Minecraft, and she is the light of my life.

I work at ridiculous projects in the wee hours of the night. Frequently things that nobody would (nor should) actually use. However, I do not view this time as wasted. These mad hacks are a creative exercise, and I find that my re-inventions can provide excellent insight into otherwise inobvious situations.

I work for Red Hat in the role of a Release Engineer, wherein I get to apply the saner aspects of my programming skills to the domain of building and releasing software.


Of course I’ve got profiles on the common social sites. These will most likely not be interesting to strangers.
