Before my professional career and my passion for music, I am a husband and father. We enjoy canoeing and kayaking, bike riding, hiking, running, cooking, art, music, and generally creating things together.

I previously experienced and worked in Nashville's creative community pursuing a career in music. I love combining that passion for music with my passion for and skills in software engineering. The most important thing for me is to continue to expand my skills and knowledge of software engineering while delivering high-quality outcomes.
