What I’ve been up to lately
My first experience with computers was watching my oldest brother rig up a baud modem to our brand new Windows 1995 computer and play Warcraft II with his friend across town. The resulting thousand-dollar internet bill and my parents anger at my brother taught me nothing - I’ve been hooked on computers ever since.
Outside of work I have a wonderful wife and two daughters. My wife is a superhero because she still loves me even though I’m known to be a dungeon master for Dungeons & Dragons campaigns and puts up with me taking an entire bookshelf (literally) of Warhammer 40k literature.

I care a lot about…
I’ve been using .NET Core since its very first release candidate and am always staying on top of the latest release.
The MVC pattern using ASP.NET MVC was my first professional adventure into the world of web development.
I’m an agile practitioner and am convinced it is the best way to create effective, happy organizations.
I take software craftsmanship seriously and that includes skills beyond just writing code - what it means to be a professional, having pride in my work, etc.
I’m passionate about delivering better software faster and avoiding software death spirals.
