I'm a programmer who loves building things for people that are functional, beautiful, and inspire happiness. I love writing clean code. I'm also deeply passionate about education and breaking down barriers that keep people from learning to code. I believe that, just like the web, coding is for everybody and the only prerequisites should be desire and curiosity. In short, I'm interested in leaving any team or community I'm a part of, and the web itself, better than when I found it.

I currently spend my days writing code as an Apprentice Engineer at 8th Light. When I'm not writing code, I love to write about code. I like to write things that help people understand complex topics, or inspire and encourage people to conquer the difficulties we all face from time to time. My writing has been featured on DEV's top 7.

I also often enjoy spending time with my family. I sometimes enjoy grabbing a burger and a pint or two of the fabulous local beer we have here in Madison. My favorite is New Glarus, with Capital Brewery coming in at a close second. I also love coffee. Feel free to send me an email and we can grab a cup at Ancora.
