Personal Profile

Any product that needs a manual to work is broken. - Elon Musk


I grew up in Mount Pleasant, SC just east of Charleston. I became interested in science, technology, and computers at a young age. My first computer was an Apple Macintosh LC II with a 16 MHz processor and 4 MB of RAM. I got interested in software development in high school when I enrolled in my high school’s inaugural software development class which focused on Visual Basic.

I’m an avid gamer and a bit of a techie. I enjoy a variety of games on both console (XBox One) and PC. I typically enjoy first-person-shooters (e.g. Battlefield, Call of Duty), action role-playing (e.g. Fallout 4, Diablo III), and strategy (e.g. Civilization V, SimCity) games. I typically keep up with the latest gadgets and tend to be an early adopter of “the next big thing”. I am an Android enthusiast.
