I had tons of fun growing up in Austin, TX through college and a few years after.
I studied English literature at Oxford during summer school.
On a whim, I decided to live in Turku, Finland for over a year.
I now live in beautiful Bend, Oregon with my family.
I love snowboarding, mountain biking, whitewater kayaking, windsurfing, yoga, ping pong, and ultimate frisbee.
I currently work at Stonecrop Tech using Ruby/Rails to dramatically improve order logistics & cost savings for the cellular construction industry. On the side, I help out a friend w/ their rails/react/elasticsearch/aws app SpeciesListPro.
I've gained unique experience working at some famous extra-challenging companies: Microsoft, GettyImages, Amazon.com, Symyx, and RealNetworks.
I enjoy volunteering & mentoring. See Sink the Stink i did a few years back to a local ruby group. At Stonecrop, I'm evangelizing ReactJS to our team.
