I was born and raised in Michigan before going to Taylor University where I acquired a BS in computer science, a bunch of life-long friends, and a beautiful, loving wife.
My wife and I lived in the Chicago suburbs for 6 years where I worked as a software developer and consultant. After the birth of our first child, we decided to move back to West Michigan where we still reside today.
Today I work for Falafel Software as a software developer and consultant. In my free time I help organize events for the local technology community and occassionally speak at the events myself.
I'm interested in camping, hiking, photography, music, and technology.
