About Me

Me celebrating the conclusion of the GRE!

I discovered my love for programming in high school through Internet Relay Chat and the MMORPG RuneScape, leading to my first coding project: an IRC bot serving 1,000 channels with over 10,000 lines of code.

I earned my Bachelor's degree in Computer Science from the University of Denver with a focus on Digital Media and Game Development. Since then I've worked on large and small-scale applications, including iOS games, an e-commerce website with 1 million products, and an enterprise-grade CRM.

Currently I'm a Lead Developer on a lively fully-distributed team at Tighten. I spend my days developing a variety of web and mobile applications using tools like Laravel, Vue/React, and NativeScript/React Native.

When I'm not programming I enjoy playing with my beagle mix Sudo, reading (often about programming), singing, playing video games, obstinately chatting on IRC, and drinking copious amounts of coffee.
