My passions include data structures, graphs, photography, film, living a cruelty-free lifestyle, hiking (but not often enough), and The Simpsons.

I studied Cinematography at Chapman University and I worked in still photography for six years. My photography has been featured on the cover of Experience Magazine where I was Lead Photographer for two years. I also designed lighting styles and marketing material for a photo studio for five years where I was Lead Photographer and Studio and Location Manager.

More recently, I studied Software Engineering at CSU Long Beach. My primary focus was on complex data structures and graphs, and strategy games.

I spend most of my free time either working on my desktop where I run Arch Linux and a LAMP server, taking pictures, going to movies, coming up with Vegan recipes in my kitchen, keeping up to date with the LA Clippers, or annoying people with Simpsons quotes and anecdotes.
