I started coding in the third grade and have been tinkering with computers all my life. After college, I spent seven years as a network engineer while also building websites as a side gig. Then I realized that I enjoyed my web work way more than my day job, so I made that my day job.
For the past nine years, I’ve been in charge of web development and digital strategy at Western Michigan University. I get to work with all sorts of cool tech, including Drupal, Node.js, Docker, and React.
When I’m not working, I love to cook, rock out on my ukulele, and play D&D and a bunch of other games with my wife and daughters.
I’m also a huge fan of sumo wrestling. Seriously, it’s the best.
