I was born and raised (and currently still reside in) northwest Oregon, USA. I started using computers at a very young age, maybe 4 or 5 years old, using my dad's computers. I got my own computer when I was 12 (1992). Later, I realized that I really enjoy programming, and in college, I decided to get a degree in software engineering. In 2005, I earned my bachelor's degree in software engineering from Oregon Institute of Technology.

I have been working as a software engineer since October 2003. So far, I've had experience with C++, PHP, JavaScript, Perl, Bash shell scripting, C#, and HTML. I have developed GUIs with MFC, wxWidgets, and WinForms. I also have experience with open-source technologies such as Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PostgreSQL. My favorite Linux text editor is Vim.

In my personal time I enjoy tinkering with computers (building PCs, gaming, occasionally working on personal programming projects), playing music (I enjoy playing guitar and synthesizer/piano), and spending time with family & friends. I also enjoy reading the occasional book (pretty much anything with a good story, but usually sci-fi, drama, programming books, advice books, and scientific non-fiction, such as books written by physicist Michio Kaku). Currently, my favorite TV show is The Office; I also like watching the news when I can. I also enjoy the occasional movie (sci-fi, comedy, action, drama; pretty much anything with a good story).
