I am a Software Systems Engineer currently living in Seattle, WA. Professionally, I am passionate about architecting solutions that help connect users with technology and toolsets in simplified, meaningful, and more productive ways. As an early adopter of enterprise technologies, I strive to develop agile, cross-platform solutions that are collaborative and bridge corporate silos.

Some of my recent highlights include web-based development of business process management (BPM) tools, workflow solutions, data warehousing, large-scale migrations, software management, and cross-functional resource management.

My other technical interests include systems engineering, networking, security, mobile/wireless, and green technology.

Me @ Park Butte in WA

Outside of the office, you will likely find me exploring the backcountry wilderness of the Pacific Northwest, balancing my love of food and drink with a low-FODMAP diet, enjoying new music, and otherwise keeping my geekdom credentials up-to-date.

Before relocating to the Pacific Northwest from Louisville, KY, I completed my graduate degree in computer engineering at the University of Louisville’s J.B. Speed School of Engineering. In the subsequent years, I have focused on growing new roots in the greater Seattle area. I occasionally write about my hiking and travel adventures at shoulderseason.net.
