About Me

A tech enthusiast and one of the worlds first full-time Army Software Engineer, and a lifelong learner in the world of software development. I've been coding and mastering all sorts of tech for over two decades, and now, I'm channeling this passion into shaping current and future software engineers.

Hope your day is going well, this page is just a little bit about me if you wanted to know. 

Who Am I

Picture this: an active-duty military member by day, and a full-stack software engineer by... also day. For over 18 years, I've been navigating the disciplined world of the military working on software, radios, satellite systems, and managing and building technological teams. I've done a bit of tech before the military so about 23 years total in tech, and now, I'm pioneering the role of a full-time software engineer within the Army. It's a unique blend, and I'm loving every bit of it.

This page is a little window into my life. It's about the blend of military precision and tech creativity. Hopefully, you'll find my dual journey as fascinating as I do.
