My name is Charles R. Portwood II, and I am a full stack web application engineer specializing in PHP.
When I am not busy working my day job at Punchkick Interactive, I love spending time with my beautiful wife, reading, working on my book Terah Lai Shorehn (TLS), taking photos, and creating awesome web applications.
While most of my work is done on a LEMP stack (Objective PHP5 & Nginx), I also work heavily with Apache, Bind9 DNS, Postfix, and NoSQL servers such as Couchbase, Redis, and MongoDB. I also have a working knowledge of Ruby, Python, and a few other languages. In my spare time I've also created a few applications for iOS, Android, and Windows Phone 8.

What behind the name "Erianna"?
In the fictional universe I am writing, Terah Lai Shorehn (TLS), Erianna is the name of the planet where a majority of the stories and events take place on. TLS is an attempt at a version of fiction that actively incorporates strong science fiction elements such as space ships, faster than light travel, time travel, alternative timlines, terraforming, and alien races with high fantasy elements such as swords, magic, kings, elves, and magical artifacts.
