About Me

My dad brought home our family’s first personal computer back in the early 90s: A Pentium 90 with a flawed processor. I was endlessly fascinated figuring out what it was capable of and how it worked. I remember feeling disappointed after learning how to use every program with an icon on the Windows 3.11 desktop, because I thought I had learned everything there was to know about software. Ha! At 8 I taught myself to type and by 13 I had written my first program.

These days, I enjoy building full stack applications, reading about cryptocurrency and blockchain, and thinking about the future of artificial intelligence. In the analog world, you might find me at a local dive bar (El Rio anyone?), relaxing at the park (Mission Dolores) or exploring more of the Bay Area.

Education

University of Missouri

B.A. in Philosophy with Honors May 2009

I graduated with a 3.42 GPA and over 150 credit hours, spread over just about every academic discipline that even slightly piqued my interest. Although I decided against a career as a professional philosopher, I don't think I could have chosen a better field to study. I would have added Computer Science as my second (first?) major though!

Hack Reactor

Advanced Software Engineering Immersive Program March 2017

Unlike bootcamps, Hack Reactor requires everyone to pass a rigorous technical interview before enrolling. The resulting community of bright, hard-working engineers created an incredible atmosphere for rapid learning and improvement. Having taught myself web development in my spare time, it was great to be able to dedicate more than 1000 hours over the course of 3 months to honing my skills with the latest web technologies.

Work

Ramsey & Co.

Owner/Operator 2014 - 2016

"Oh, like storage wars?" is the typical response when I tell people what I used to do for a living. True, it involved storage units. But I never once had to bid against anyone.
