A dedicated programmer and application developer, I've been writing applications for
businesses (including my own) in the Austin area since 2016. Before that I was both an
developer and a support engineer at a Fortune 500 company in Austin.

My first exposure to programming came when I studied mathematics and computer
at the University of Texas. Beginning in C and moving through Java to Python and
I learned some core pieces of how to build solid Object-Oriented applications.
Immediately after college I worked for Wachovia Bank while tutoring high school
and sciences, and then moved on to work for Q2ebanking for 5 years. During my Q2
from basic support up to their Python team, and ended as a development team
and engineer for a Tier 1 project.
Since stepping away from Q2 I have travelled and programmed. I started by travelling
a while until I realized that I missed programming and problem-solving. So, I got
I'd always told myself that someday I was going to learn how to build a website from
scratch, so that's where I started. A friend needed a tool to help him do some Ebay
analysis for his business, and using Flask and Docker over the course of a long
I built him a web based tool that
used Ebay's API to do exactly that. The code I wrote that first weekend is painful
look back at today because it's clear I was making it up as I went along, but it was
start of a new journey for me and signaled bigger things to come.
Since that fateful weekend in 2016 I've kept at it, and my web apps have become more
more modular, and more automated. My goal in life is to learn something new
and a lot of those learning days have been spent nose deep in PyCharm and Linux.
An avid bass player and singer, I've been performing in and around Austin, TX
for a little over ten years, mostly with my group Attic Asylum.
Recently I started playing solo sets with a loop pedal.
My love for music began when I joined the elementary school choir all the way back
Being asthmatic as a child, it was determined that music would be the
to sports in the Texas heat, so music it was.
I competed through 6 or 7 years of UIL competitions as solo, small and large choir
and in high school began performing in our school's rock talent show.
It was around that time that I started to learn to play the bass guitar, and I've
in love ever since.
In college I worked at the Austin School of Music at the front desk answering phones,
entering data, doing homework, and absorbing nearly everything I
could. I even ran a few classes during the school's summer Rock Camp. It was during this
I joined my first band and began gigging around Austin.
I have always made a living doing things other than music, but music is and will
where my heart lies. It has always been a vessel away from the stress
of life that still allows me to maintain that creative spark and productive energy.
Music is a continuous challenge, and I can't wait to see where it takes me next.
