Nerd. The one word to best describe myself. I strive to learn new things every day to grow as a person. Whether that be technology, science, medicine, engineering, or even gaming.
I'm a coffee addicted, sleep deprived, and competitive person. The goal behind this website is to continue learning and share as much as I can down the paths of all things programming and design.
While software engineering is the main focus of this blog, I'll also share glimpses of my passion for cooking, cycling, and pc gaming.
I rely on logic and common sense to guide me. Through these principles I'm able to solve problems effectively, which is why I love what I do. There's something incredible about being presented with a challenge and fighting to overcome it. I guess its sort of a superhero complex.
I'm efficient at working on my own, setting goals and accomplishing them, but I also do well when part of a team. I've learned that some problems require multiple perspectives to conquer, and that everyone brings different skills to the table. Pair programming and peer review helps us grow as developers and I encourage people to give feedback wherever possible.
Thanks for checkout out my site, and I look forward to connecting with you at some point in the future!
Should companies change their hiring process?

I’ve been on the hunt for a full-time job since I graduated last year. Granted, theeffort I’ve put in till recently has been.. less than ideal. We can talkabout that later though. Short version is I’ve been doing contracted consulting work. Is it better to bang your head against a wall or to ignore the problem? For the past month I’ve been working on a project for a client. As part of my desire toalways continue learning new things, I switched up my usual tech stack for this one. Hackintosh, a blessing or nightmare? I’m one of those engineers that prefers using vim and terminal dev environment. Which forme means using either a linux distro or macOS. Since I’m also someone who has grownaccustomed to my macbook pro, and the apps that go along with it, I really wanted to staywithin that ecosystem. Facelifts and Fresh Starts A recurring theme in these posts since the beginning has always been:
