I'm a


I'm a developer, teacher, mentor, manager, avid learner and a well-rounded technology professional. I'm a jack of all trades in technology and master of a few. I don't get intimidated by any area of technology, and feel comfortable troubleshooting issues as varied as database performance issues, front-end rendering issues, cleaning up code, diving deep into packet traces, or building applications from scratch.

I'm confident in my skillset, but fun to work with. I love collaborating and am always happy to help others with diverse issues. I love teaching and helping others learn new skills.


I've developed in .NET for 15 years. I've worked primarily in web development and built dozens of applications in my career.


I teach college courses at a community college. Coursework includes C# and Systems Analysis and Design. I am always happy to take time out of my day to teach others...whether it's troubleshooting an application, giving people programming pointers, or helping people learn how to use points for travel.


I manage a team of technology professionals and strive to be a servant leader. I find I lead best when I understand the challenges my team faces. I don't pretend to know all the answers, but my team appreciates that I make an effort to understand what they are working through and we can collaborate.


I am passionate about learning new tech skills. I enjoy it, and look forward to leveraging new skills and technology to make me more effective. Here's a few examples of technology I've recently added to my toolkit:

  • Power Apps
  • Power Automate
  • .NET Core
  • Freeswitch
  • React
  • Elastic

Technology Professional

I'm a well-rounded technology professional. I'm comfortable reviewing network packet traces, navigating my way around a linux console, creating indexes in SQL server, configuring a VM, managing Azure resources, troubleshooting complex application performance issues and performing many other tasks that show I'm comfortable in almost all facets of Information Technology.
