I grew up fascinated by the ASCII art and text adventure of BBSes. I began programming at age 12 and built my first website in 1999. I enjoy all aspects of development from functionally beautiful interfaces to artfully efficient engineering. My belief is that each line of code should be thoroughly considered and every pixel carefully placed. I often obsess over the details and can become emotionally invested in database relationships. I love learning new tools and and try to write smarter code every day. When I’m not at a computer you can find me behind a camera or a drumset.
