I am a lifelong learner who has recently fallen in love with web development.
From my earliest days I was a natural engineer, disassembling and reassembling things around the house, building and testing all sorts of contraptions from boats to cars to parachutes and racing any kid in the neighborhood on my bike or skateboard. My undergraduate studies included Mechanical Engineering and Business Management. Since 2001, I have held numerous technical and business roles in the Internet industry.
After nearly a decade working in product management, a health scare and the new perspective provided by parenthood led me to the realization that what I was doing for a living and what I was passionate about were not well enough aligned. So, I decided to return to my technical roots and began my journey to becoming a full-stack developer by completing the Web Development Boot Camp at The George Washington University.
To balance out the hours spent at a computer screen, I love being outdoors pursuing a number of activities. My wife and I are avid rock-climbers. Hiking, camping and cycling are also common pastimes, with adventures as nearby as in our hometown of Washington DC and as far away as Peru.
