I am an avid traveler and have been to 49 states and over 30 countries. In my free time I also enjoy fishing, gardening, metalworking, and building things that aren't software.
Before becoming a developer I was involved in technology sales. After doing that for several years, I decided to follow my passion for travel and took the opportunity to drive trucks for a few years throughout North America. I learned a lot about people, different business practices, and cultures.
My greatest driving force in life is to learn new things and help people solve challenging problems.
