About Me

I'm a Software Development Engineer at Ford. When I'm not busy coding you can find me reading (mostly historical fiction and sci-fi), playing soccer, watching a movie, or playing the piano. I also enjoy dabbling in graphic and web design.

I fell in love with programming in middle school while watching Star Trek. This was before Alexa, the Google Assistant, or even Siri when the Star Trek Computer, which is much like a modern personal assistant, ignited a spark in my imagination and drove me to begin my programming adventure. I've been addicted ever since!
