Coming from a mostly math and business background, I've spent the last few years learning the art of building software and the best ways to learn to code. Outside of my day-to-day as a software architect, I'm passionate about teaching others to build things and always on the lookout for new and transformative tech! Most recently I've begun diving into the world of public cloud at an Enterprise scale as well!

Outside of work I love to run and spend time with my wife in our hometown of Bristol, CT. I'm also involved in various community efforts around the Hartford area including Leadership Greater Hartford and Habitat for Humanity!
