Hobbies

I love spending time outside and in nature.  Skiing, mountain biking, and backpacking are some of my favorite activities.  I also enjoy all things nerd.  Building computers, gaming, and tinkering with my phone as well as writing scripts to automate daily tasks or make actions faster.

My Skills

From software builds to Agile workflows, I can automate it all. No process should be done manually more than once.

C#, Javascript, and Python are my current languages of choice but I’m always down to learn something new to get the job done.

With the Rocky Mountains in my back yard I always have a beautiful backdrop for a photo.

I’m not afraid to decompile some code, engineer solutions, or find workarounds to make things work.
