About Me

I'm an Arizona native now living in the San Francisco Bay Area. I graduated from Arizona State in 2011 with a BS in Computer Science and a Business minor.

I'm currently working as a software engineer for education.com where I get to build awesome products used by millions of parents and teachers every month.

I also regularly contribute to open source projects and even have a few of my own.
