About me

I love bringing people together, whether it's for a great concert or through software. I have over 15 years of military music experience with tours in both West Virginia (Army National Guard) and Southeast Asia (US Navy). Through all that time, I was a doer and a fixer. My commands have trusted me with their most important jobs because they knew I would work through any obstacle--bureaucratic or otherwise.

I recently attended Turing in order to learn a new set of skills to challenge myself in the tech world. If you're looking for someone who finds solutions by relying on previous life experience, I would love to start a conversation about how I bring my blue-jacket-of-the-year-can-do-make-no-excuses attitude to your team.
