About Me

Born and raised in Houston, TX, I eventually moved to Austin, where I attended University of Texas. I graduated with a B.S. in Computer Science in 2004.

In 2010, I got married to my wonderful wife Jenny. Three years later, we had our beautiful son, Emerson and now we are all living happily together in the Bay Area.

I haved worked in software development professionally for over 10 years, and have worked on dozens of projects, and used numerous languages in my career. My work consists of everything from tiny personal scripts to huge, scalable web and mobile apps for multinational businesses.

I am a writer of stories and poems, a casual investor, a fitness enthusiast, a photo tinkerer and I also enjoy a good video game when I have the time. I love traveling and have been to at least 10 countries. When I am not working or playing, I enjoy spending time with my friends, family and my dog, Oscar.
