My name is Mike Carlson, and this site is my personal blog.

The title, My Wushu Blog, comes from one of my past hobbies. I had been doing Wushu (Chinese martial arts) for a few years, and like my friend Mark, I liked to blog about my experiences.

That is now a long time ago, or so it feels that way. Now, I mostly blog about:

  • My house, that is constantly fighting nature and entropy
  • Cool technology that I get to implement

Other than that, I don’t get out much these days.

Professionally, I work in the IT field, and that seems to work out just fine since I get to do my hobby for a living.

Currently I work for New Relic as a Site Reliability Engineer (I still work on hardware, shhhhh…)

I can be reached at for any inquiries.
