My name is Chuck Skoda. I’m married to the gorgeous Caitlin Jean, the finest person I know, and well out of my league. We have a Shiba Inu named Poppy. I’m currently working as a developer at Tagboard, a startup in Redmond. Previously, I developed video games at 5TH Cell where we created the Scribblenauts franchise among others. I’m a co-founder of Sky Balloon, a software studio focused on making software we want to use. I’m originally from the Chicago area, but moved to Seattle in August 2002 to study at DigiPen.
Technology is one of my principal interests. I’ve been using Apple computers since my Dad picked up a Macintosh Plus circa 1987/88, and I generally consider my iPhone to be the best computer I own. If you are interested in any type of geeky pursuit, I’m sure we’d have something to talk about.
Perhaps more than anywhere besides work, you can find me at The City Church volunteering, meeting people, or just hanging out. I love my church family, and I couldn’t ask for a better place to be. It’s been a wonderful place to grow, and it’s one of the biggest things responsible for making Seattle feel like home.
I’ve had some type of blog for a number of years. It started as a place to keep my family and friends updated on my life while I was away at school. Today, more than anything else, it’s a place where I write for people like me, and more specifically, people with interests like mine. Most notably, it’s a home for my thoughts about chocolatey technology. This is where I give a shout-out to Homestar Runner, from whom I stole the name for the site. And just for the record, I don’t say anything here on behalf of anyone but myself.
see you around
Thanks for stopping by. I’m most active online on twitter if you want to say hi. If you have Instagram, I’m @skoda there. You can send me an email, and if you’re a real life friend, add me on facebook. I hope you’ve had a pleasant stay.
