I believe that I inherited the love of building things from my father, a master carpenter and small business owner. Although building software is not as concrete as building a home, at the end of the day, I believe that I feel the same satisfaction. I discovered this at age of twelve, and as a teenager I spent all of my waking hours outside of school exploring computer programming.

I joined a small Internet Service Provider in my hometown of Greenville, MI at the age of fourteen where I learned in depth knowledge of core Internet protocols, relational databases and web technologies. I was primarily responsible for the development of an internal customer management and billing system.

After graduating from high school in 2001, it was a logical choice for me to solidify and expand my knowledge base by pursuing a degree in Computer Science at Grand Valley State University.

Shortly before graduating from college in 2006, I joined GE Aviation where I was exposed to a variety of software development platforms and technologies including embedded, desktop, and web. Most recently, I spent four years on an international assignment for GE in Shanghai, China where I developed desktop and web-based avionics network modeling tools.

After eleven years with GE, I decided pursue a different path and joined join Atomic Object as a consultant and developer. I am currently a developer on a web-based application project for Masterpiece Flower Company.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my lovely wife and two cute daughters.
