Developer, Adventure Seeker, Animal Lover


I worked at the University of Denver for 8 years as an application developer before moving on to work for Ellucian, a global leader in higher education software and services.

I grew up in a small town in southern Colorado and moved to Denver to go to college. I once aspired to study law or write for a living, but I found myself fixing computers and learning to code instead.

I enjoy coding as much as I love design. I'm a database geek that can kern type.

I'm a creative problem solver and jack of all trades. I'm comfortable being thrown into the unknown.

In my free time I run up mountains, ride my bike for hours, backpack for days on end, and ski when the snow flies.
