About Me

I am a developer/programmer with a passion for creating elegant and quality solutions through code. I work in HL7 Interface Development focusing on implementing Electronic Data Integration (EDI) solutions for healthcare data exchange between systems. I consider myself a life-long learner, and I am always excited about digging into a new problem and learning a different way to implement a solution.


I currently live in Portland, OR, and in my free time I love to explore the beautiful Pacific Northwest with my wonderful wife and fun-loving dog, go on a bike ride, and play ultimate frisbee.
