My college senior project: a Mastodon client web app


I've been working in software since 2008. I graduated with a computer science degree from NCSU. I currently work as a software engineer at Amazon here in Nashville.

I've always got some code running at home. I enjoy working on side projects at home, and writing on my dev blog.

Tech isn't my only passion. My family is the most important thing in my life. I have one cute son, one beautiful daughter, and one amazing wife.

I'm a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (formerly nicknamed as "the Mormon Church"). I even run a podcast and write a blog about my faith, too.
