In my day job, I have been working in downtown Chicago on the architecture and development of .NET systems for over 6 years. Currently, I am at Making Waves USA building sites primarily in Episerver. I have lived in the Chicagoland area my entire life and went to school at Purdue University for my undergraduate and graduate degrees.
In my free time, I enjoy exploring new technologies, especially those related to web and mobile. My current interests are mainly in learning more Nodejs, UX, and working on revising some iOS apps I started early on in my development life. This site itself was my first venture into working with Node.
All the projects I will be blogging about will be available on my GitHub. Feel free to add to them or message me with suggestions. I am always looking for interesting projects and people to collaborate with.
Outside of technology, I like to spend free time with friends, family, and my pup Riley (AKA Rye-bread, Rye-guy, Buddy Boy). When all else fails, I can always go for a good binge-watch of The Office… Or Parks & Rec… or The Office.
I have been fortunate enough to be able to travel to interesting places and do some cool things. While this blog is focused mostly on tech, I might throw one or two in there about places I have been or things I have done outside of development & tech.
