About Me

I am a former US Air Force Explosive Ordnance Disposal technician turned software developer. This may seem like a odd jump to some, but for me it was completely natural. I enjoy solving complicated problems. Software development allows me that outlet, and is far more risk averse, which my wife and three girls appreciate.

When not developing the next big thing I enjoy family time, woodworking, video gaming, road biking, and running. I completed my first half-marathon in 2014, and I look forward to someday (before I get too old) taking it to the next level.

NOTE: you may need to be connected to the internal LRS network for these links to work.

pro·fes·sion·al Experience

I enjoy working on a variety of projects and can manage multiple projects at once. The most rewarding projects for me personally are ones where I have access to develop on the full stack (server to end-user), and where I have the flexibility to create user experiences that delight.

I am currently not actively seeking employment however, I do try and keep my resume up-to-date.
