Here are a few of my side projects. Some are under active development. Some are under "less than active" development ☺. Almost all are open source.

I've been working in software since 2008. I graduated with a computer science degree from NCSU. I currently work as a software engineer.

I've always got some code running at home. I enjoy working on side projects at home, and writing on my dev blog.

I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (former nickname: "the Mormons"). I served a two-year mission for the Church and I regularly blog and podcast about my faith. Following my mission, I married my highschool sweetheart. We have 3 rambunctious children 5 and under, so my conference calls get a little noisy 😉
