My career of 13 years has been full, fun and adventurous. It’s also been unconventional.

I am a software engineer. I have worked on green-field applications, building everything fresh from the ground up, but I also have inherited inherited massive existing projects with large amounts of technical debt. I have worked in multiple, varied industries, namely government services, financial technologies, insurance technologies, public safety, customer relationship management, and more. In all cases, I strive to use my talents to make life better and easier for those around me.

Towards the beginning of my career, I worked in digital media, focused on visual display, web layouts, and production of news content. In those days, I managed a publication that won the 2013 EPPY award for best sports website in America. I’ve was an editor, a writer, a producer, a reporter, a photographer, a videographer, a designer, and a brand manager.

I’m also a decorated scholar. I have an MBA and two Bachelor’s degrees.
