I'm a software engineer living in Chicago working for cars.com.
Over the past decade I've focused on building web applications. I've worked for companies ranging from startups to large dot-coms (yellowpages.com and cars.com). With every project I work on, I'm a voice for the user and enjoy discovering new ways to optimize the user experience.
I'm passionate about teaching and enjoy presenting at meetups. I'm a member of the Toastmasters International club where we meet regularly to practice public speaking and develop our communication skills.
Music has always been a big part of my life. I play guitar and drums and incorporate music into most of my blog posts. I'm a Christian and love playing guitar and drums in the Four Corners Community Church worship band.
I'm blessed with an amazing family. Here's my wife Raquel and my two kids, Micah and Delilah.
Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. - 1 Peter 4:8 NIV
