I love helping people solve problems and accomplish their development goals!

Outside of work you will find me volunteering with organizations like TEDxSeattle and Soldiers' Angels. In my down time I am usually looking for that next great cup of coffee, enjoying time with my amazing wife and family, reading, laughing at my favorite comedian, learning to cook, and traveling.
