I'm a Software Professional living in Utah, USA. I aim to make a difference through creative technology solutions.

I have always been interested in science, technology, engineering, and math. I started out playing with electronics, taking things apart and figuring out how they worked. I studied Electrical Engineering and built some cool systems that were used in communications. I quickly learned that there were some interesting problems being solved in software and I changed my direction and have been doing software ever since.
