About Me

I'm a software developer located in Broomfield, Colorado. I work for Microsoft on Xamarin.Forms.

I first learned to program with BASIC on a TRS-80 in elementary school, moving on to C and C++ in high school. I went to college at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology where I majored in computer science. When I finished, I moved out to Colorado where I worked for nearly a decade as a consultant and software developer. Eventually I got tired of the consulting game and decided to strike out on my own.

Since I started writing software professionally, I've worked in Windows, Linux, and Mac environments on web applications, web services, desktop applications, web front-ends, web control libraries, services, low-level hardware communications, large database migrations, Office plug-ins, and mobile applications for PDAs and smartphones. In other words, I've got a wide range of experience and I learn very quickly.

Since 2006 I've been studying Krav Maga at Colorado Krav Maga. Occasionally I do some distance running. I'm an avid reader. I also play a fair amount of video games, mainly on Xbox Live and Steam with a little bit of StarCraft 2 thrown in.
