I started programming in quantitative finance classes at Cal Poly SLO and built option pricing models on Wall Street before completing a Master's Degree in Computer Science at NYU's Courant Institute.

Since moving to Boulder I have worked at startups, agencies, and large corporations. I ran my own consulting business called Blue Hook for three years and built machine learning systems using Python, Go, MongoDB, and Docker at Pearson before becoming a Lead Instructor at Galvanize.

I spend my free time playing with Elm, Rust, and Kotlin. I'm a co-organizer of Front Range Elm and the creator of Valunicorn. I also love being outside, in the water, or drinking coffee / tea / beer. Please feel free to reach out!
