About Me

I’m an avid developer and designer, and have been working with web technology and graphic design for over 15 years, professionally for over 5 years.

Before I started down my career path in technology I was an assistant self defense instructor at a martial arts school in Salem, Oregon, while attending the local community college, before enlisting in the Marine Corps in 2006. After my service I went back to college at Portland State University until I received my Bachelors Degree in Philosophy of Science. I then continued my education and received AAS degrees in Computer Information Systems and Web Development. I’m currently enrolled and pursuing a Bachelors Degree in Computer Science from PSU.

I’m an ardent Martial Arts and gaming enthusiast, and currently play Heroes of the Storm, Hearthstone, Chivalry: Medieval Warfare and Titanfall 2 competitively.

Jack of All Trades / Master of Some

I previously served as the acting Chief Technology Office for a local digital ad agency in Beaverton, OR before moving over to a fantastic position as a UX/Web Applications Developer at an SMB Google Partner in Lake Oswege, OR.

I have a strong interest in gamification and web analytics, and have developed game inspired applications to better motivate sales teams while breaking up the monotony of their day to day routines. It’s my ongoing goal to find better ways to optimize individual and group productivity in outlets that increase overall moral while decreasing workplace stress.
