About Me

I'm just a geek who enjoys building things and spending time outdoors in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. When I'm not hunkered down at my desk writing code, you can find me camping with my best bud, Luca, or riding the dunes along the Oregon coast.

My passion for technology and software development began a young age, during a time when I was admittedly spending too much time playing videogames. After nearly mastering a game by the name of RuneScape, I became fascinated with the underlying mechanism that made it all possible - the code. Around the same time Apple had released the App Store for iOS, opening up many doors for independend developers to mobile application development. I went on to learn about Objective-C and Swift, UIKit, application lifecycle, debugging, memory management & reference counting, and much more. I've been fascinated by computer science and software development ever since.

Ideas for projects regularly come to mind, and sometimes the idea is compelling enough for me invest the time into building it. Not only does this serve as a creative outlet for me, but it also allows me to continue learning, exploring and implementing new things in the fantastic world of software development.
