I'm a software developer who loves working on problems that make a meaningful impact on people's lives. From health care to corporate training with some lighter fare on the side I've focused on improving parts of the life that people dread so that they can be a more enjoyable (or at least less painful) experience.
In my current role I'm a software developer at Mindflash, an online training platform used by companies such as Yammer and Dyson. I'm a full stack developer working on both web and mobile apps.
I was born and raised in Phoenix, AZ. I attended Washington University in St. Louis and received both Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Computer Science. After 8 years living in the Midwest I've settled with my wife, Erica; son, Seth; and dog, Schwartz in the San Francisco bay area. In my free time I enjoy music, politics, the occasional video game, and staying active. I particularly love going to the beach and spending time outdoors with my son.
Between my job and family responsibilities it can be quite difficult to find free time to work on side projects. However, here are some of the more fleshed out ideas I've developed recently.
