I live in Chicago with my wife Anna, our daughter Emma, and two dogs Lizzie (a corgi) and HAL (a border/heeler mix).

I am a software developer and have been programming since I was eight years old. I consider myself very fortunate to do something for a living that I truly love. I mostly program in Java but also enjoy Kotlin and Scala.

I’m also an executive board member of the Chicago Java Users Group, so come say hello if you attend one of our meetups!

I enjoy reading, used book stores, walking/hiking, doughnuts, coffee, Formula 1, woodworking, programming, and travel.
