Curious and persistent, building quality experiences.


I am an experienced software engineer passionate about learning and building performant, correct applications. I've been recognized as a individual performer and as a team player.

My engineering journey started on whim asking an employer for a internship in a stairwell and becoming a product person for a small SaaS app. From there I began building Python, JavaScript, and Rust apps.

Outside of programming for work, I enjoy programming for fun, reading, and surfing Lake Michigan when time and weather and children allow.
