Hello, my name is Miguel Pimentel. I am a self-taught hobby developer with too many ideas and not enough time. I was born in the Dominican Republic, and currently live in Minnesota, US.

I think a lot, work a lot, have existential crises, and know just enough about making websites to make me dangerous. I enjoy writing, reading, coding, listening to music, and love having a problem to solve.

A chronic case of curiosity leads me to learn and do many interesting things. For example:

In my spare time, I'm drawn to a diverse range of interests, including web development, public infrastructure, fire science, digital gardening, materials science, game development, and personal knowledge management.

Professionally, I work as an Assistant Contract Administrator for Metro Transit, I oversee projects through their installation, construction, and commissioning phases. On a day-to-day basis, I manage multiple projects that tie in one way or another to the public transportation system of the Twin Cities' metro area in Minnesota. Learn more about my projects by visiting the projects page.

With over 10 years of experience in public construction, I have amassed a number of unique projects and experiences that cover many different fields. It all started when I got my first job as a Civil Engineering Technician for a contracting company near my university. I was at the time attending INTEC while pursuing a Bachelor's in Civil Engineering. Unfortunately, I was unable to finish my college education due to personal reasons.

Nevertheless, today I thrive having experience in not only public infrastructure, but technology, electrical, rail, and bus related projects as well. If interested, here's my resume.

In the past, you could find me working as a volunteer/on-call Firefighter for the City of Bloomington, Minnesota. I was a licensed firefighter and Emergency Medical Technician (EMT).

If you'd like to reach out, here are a few options:


You would probably find me in other places, too, provided you look hard enough.
