Who are you?

What’s Paceaux and how do I pronounce it?
When I was getting my degrees in French and Spanish, I somehow picked up the nickname ‘Paco’ — and it stuck. Paco is a Spanish equivalent for ‘Frank’. Then a few years later, a friend of mine from Louisiana, named Chiceaux, plugged Paceaux into a Halo2 game.Paceaux is the French way of writing a Spanish name.
It’s pronounced, “Paco”.
Do you speak any languages other than French and Spanish?
I’m decent with Hebrew, Russian, and Chinese. If you’re interested in my lifelong passion for languages, there’s a blog post for that.
Where do you work?
I’m a Senior Front End Developer for Tahzoo, A company that does Customer Experience Management (CXM). A lot of my focus is around content management systems (CMS), specifically one CMS called Tridion. Tahzoo works on things like SDL’s Smart Target application, SDL Media Manager, and SDL mobile — all of which keep my feet in front-end but my head in SDL.
What kind of work do you do?
I do front-end, especially HTML5 and CSS3. Much of what I do is centered around front-end development. I spend a lot of time writing templates on various projects. If needed, I’ll write them in Tridion’s custom Dreamweaver markup. But mostly, I write templates in DD4T or Alex Klock’s Razor Mediator, sometimes with a dab o’ C#, too.

Rarely Asked Questions
Are you a religious guy?
No, but I’m a faithful Christian. When I write about my faith, I try to be honest, truthful, and sincere — without being obnoxious or boastful. Any time I write about my faith, trust me, I’m more uncomfortable about it than you (It’s not like there’s a
ctrl-z for the internet).
Are you married?
I’ve been married for 12+ years to my beautiful wife Sara, who served in the Air Force for 6 years and somehow managed to still be a remarkably good shot.
How many kids do you have?
None. We’re hoping someone will give us theirs.
Yeah, that’s how adoption works.
