I'm a 26 year-old software engineer living in Minneapolis, MN. I got my start in programming by contributing to the (was) popular Half-Life and Half-Life 2 modification, Digital Paintball. My passion is developing software that works, without the bells and whistles that get in the way of results.
I attended college at Full Sail University, graduating with a B.S. in Entertainment Business in 2007. Not long after, I was hired by Purple, Rock, Scissors as Lead Developer where I managed a small team of web and mobile developers. Afterwhich, I joined Irdeto USA as a Sr Software Engineer on their broadband video delivery platform until March 2013. I now work for Bloom Health as a Software Engineer.
From 2008-2010, I was invited back to Full Sail University to regularly serve on the school's Web Design & Development Bachelor Program Advisory Board, where I assisted in ensuring the school produced highly competitive and industry-relevant graduates.
In addition to my daily work duties, I also work as an IT consultant for a number of digital agencies and web startups internationally, assisting in everything from hands-on development to managerial and client-facing tasks.
When I'm not stuffed behind the glow of my laptop, I enjoy riding my bikes (they're my only mode of transportation), playing paintball, watching basketball and soccer (Chelsea!), painting, photography, listening to music, and drinking coffee and beer.
