Hey-yo. ⬅️ (I start conversations like this, a-lot… and use lots of ? ? ✊ ?).
Hello and welcome to my blog! My name is Justin, though many of you might recognize me as “Koop” from the online sphere. The name stems from the phonetic pronunciation of the first syllable in my last name: Kopepasah.
I wear my identity with pride as a First American and am honored to be a tribal member of the Comanche Nation. This rich cultural heritage often interweaves with my professional pursuits and personal journey, influencing my perspectives and ethos.
Professionally, I’ve carved a niche as a Lead Software Engineer, specializing in the realms of Web, Automation, and Testing. My penchant for standards, processes, security, privacy, and efficiency is not just a job requirement but a passionate pursuit. I believe that the foundation of any great technological solution lies in its standardization, security, and the efficiency it brings to the table.
Beyond my technical role, I have an entrepreneurial spirit. As a business owner, I understand the nuances and challenges of the business world, and through this blog, I aim to share insights, experiences, and the myriad lessons learned along the way.
On a personal note, my journey hasn’t been without its fair share of challenges. I am a reformed convict, a testament to the power of change and redemption. My life story is a living proof that with the right guidance, support, and sheer determination, one can rise from their past, rewrite their narrative, and emerge as a productive member of society.
Thank you for taking the time to learn a little more about me. Through this blog, I hope to not only share my professional insights but also inspire and uplift others by sharing my personal journey. Whether you’re here for tech advice or a dose of inspiration, I’m glad you’ve stopped by.
