My love of computers began with a love of pressing buttons. I pushed any and all buttons without regard for the consequences. It's a great way to break things—and learn.

My first programs were written on a TI-89 graphing calculator during English class, and I eventually branched out to desktop applications and web development. I started programming professionally in 2008 doing database work with SQL Server. Since then, I’ve worked with a variety of technologies on many different platforms.

I graduated from the University of Oklahoma with degrees in Mathematics and Economics. In college, I enjoyed using computers to process and analyze economic data. After college, I started working at a software consultancy, and I’ve been doing that ever since.

As a software consultant, I love learning about different kinds of businesses and thinking about how I can help them solve their problems and improve their processes. In my spare time, I like to mountain bike and spend time outside with good books.
