I currently reside in beautiful Southern Oregon. I graduated from Southern Oregon University with a B.S. in Computer Science and a minor in business in 2010. Before school I served in the United States Navy for eight years as an Electronics Technician and then as an Instructor.

My current pursuit and passion involve Android Development and entrepreneurship. I personally have developed and published over 17 mobile applications consisting of both Android and iOS.

I have over 18 years of experience working on various software projects, as both an experienced 1099 remote contractor and a full time employed software developer. I learn and adapt quickly. Projects have ranged from natively built Android/iOS apps, WPF/VSTO Windows Software to E2E CMS based Java/.NET Websites.
