I am a software engineer from the Midwest. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2015 as well as my Associates Degree in Computer Information Technology from Southeast Community College in 2018.
While in college I met my wife Lauren. We’ve been married since 2015 and have three amazing young children and two Yorkies.
I’ve been a part of software teams since my first job as an intern doing business analytics in 2014. From there I transitioned to a full-time Business Analyst and eventually took on the role and responsibilities of a Product Manager. In 2016 I decided to make the transition to software engineering by heading back to school. I was able to begin working as a full-time engineer while still attending school in 2017 and I haven’t looked back.
Since beginning my career in software my roles have gone from focusing on end-user satisfaction and business workflows, to solving business problems through communication with stakeholders, to now building the software that delights users and provides value to the business.
I’ve worked on a wide variety of applications and domains, but they’ve all been heavily entrenched in the .NET ecosystem. I’ve written code in C# (and VB.NET) using Web API, MVC, and yes, even Web Forms. I’ve worked with MS SQL, Postgres, and even a bit with mainframes. Recently I've enjoyed working on teams making the transition from full .NET Framework to the green fields of .NET Core (soon .NET 5, 6 and beyond). I pride myself in writing code that is readable and testable. I also believe that the best way to understand a topic is to teach it to someone else.
