I am currently employed as a Software Engineer at Microsoft, where I started working in June of 2019.  I have a BS in Computer Engineering from Iowa State University.

I first became interested in computers back in 2002 when I started playing text-based computer games. Accompanied with a love for math, I was instantly curious about how computers really worked. Since then, I have built multiple desktops for myself and others, along with coding professionally since 2012 (as an intern while in college).

Outside of development, I enjoy reading, hiking, and playing video games. I have a wife, two dogs, and a cat.
