Accomplished Technologist in Colorado
Hi, I'm Kurt. I'm a technical leader, accomplished technologist, mentor, and open-source enthusiast; as well as a dad and musician.
It might sound cliche, but improving the world we live in and helping others achieve their potential is very important to me.
In spite of my sister's advice to the contrary (and to her complete bafflement), when I was 12 years old I spent my entire life savings on a programming book and began teaching myself how to write DOS programs in the basement of my parent's home. One thing led to another, and a few years later I found myself starting an indie game company with a friend.
During my career, I've had the opportunity to serve in a wide variety of roles in such diverse fields as video game development, drivers, system utilities, Internet marketing, cloud services, and information security.
I'm also a big believer and contributor to open source and serve as a core maintainer for the Falcon web framework in the Python community. Many projects that I have worked on would not have been possible without building on top of a number of great community projects.
Oh, and I hold a B.Sc. in Computer Science from Brigham Young University, much to the chagrin of my music professor.
