Welcome to my homepage. I'm a software developer who enjoys full-stack Web development, high availability clusters, and languages that transpile to Javascript, like: Clojurescript, Nim.

One might ask, why bother to have a static homepage in the era of LinkedIn, Facebook, Medium, and Twitter? For me, homepages are a reminder of what the Web was first meant to be. A blank slate for expressing yourself. An emphasis on content over form. A network of links that let you dig deeper into interesting topics. Pages emphasizing ideas, individualism, creations, and projects — not firehose news feeds or auto-tagged vacation photos. It also doesn't hurt that this page is simple HTML, that can be viewed and downloaded anywhere. This site looks great on Lynx. Facebook... not so much.

I graduated Gonzaga University in 2013 (at the tender age of 20) with honors and a B.S. in Math and Computer Science.

I'm currently employed at Redox, working on a unified API for health data. I do infrastructure projects, front-end development, and everything in between.
