About me

I'm a software developer and US Navy veteran who is insatiably curious and meticulously detail oriented. My passion for being a creator is what drives me to produce elegant yet empathetic code, with a focus on streamlined and impactful user experiences. Drawing from a unique background in computer networking, ballistic missile defense systems, maritime engineering, and information systems, I'm seeking to augment a diverse team of open-minded thinkers and tinkerers.
