I'm a full-stack software engineer based in the
beautiful city of Austin, TX. I am

AngularJS, NodeJS/Express, MySQL, and MongoDB. Check
out my portfolio or resume for more details on three
full-stack web applications I have recently built

I'm typically a believer in the phrase, "Don't fix something that isn't broken," but when it comes to software development, I get the most satisfaction out of constantly learning new technologies and techniques to improve my code and improve myself as a critical thinker even if something is working. I fix a lot of broken things too....
Life is all about balance. When I am not sitting at my computer, I find the best way to find that balance is to get oustide and explore, whether that means climbing mountains or scuba diving coral reefs, or just heading to a nearby hiking trail or going fishing at the lake. Traveling is probably my favorite way to challenge myself in overcoming uncertainty and have found some of life's most important lessons can be learned in the most random places and uncomfortable situations, i.e. getting lost in the Costa Rican rainforest or knocking on strangers' doors for a place to sleep in New Zealand.
I'm originally from Dallas, but have been living in
Austin for 6 years now. I do not anticipate that
changing anytime soon. I love this city, but if you
don't live here, it's not that great and you
shouldn't consider moving here. Did I do that right?
Semi-domesticated, you ask?
Well, while I don't spend too much time at home, I appreciate having a space to come home to and unwind, whether that means reading a book or watching one of my favorite TV shows. My favorite authors as of late are Hunter Thompson, Liu Cixin, and Chuck Palahniuk. Also, very much into Game of Thrones, Stranger Things, Rick and Morty, and South Park.
