I am a 26 year-old software developer working at a company in Walpole MA, that heavily utilizes Allegro Common Lisp for our applications. I primarily focus on our back-end build and deployment infrastructure, but as with any small company, I wear many hats and jump around assisting wherever I am needed.

Outside of work, I am an enthusiastic Linux user that loves learning about computers, programming languages (especially functional ones), and open source technologies. I majored in Neuroscience with a minor in Computer Science at Lafayette College, but am mostly a self-taught learner and continue to study computer science and IT topics by working on personal projects, taking courses, and maintaining my homelab. This website exists to help document the personal projects I work on, and what I’ve learned.

Beyond technology, I love music, writing, the outdoors, and swimming (I competitively swam from the age of 8, through college). I am married to an amazing fourth year Medical Student (Rebecca) at the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University. We have been together for over 11 years and were married on September 17th, 2016 (the day before our 10th anniversary).

This summer, Rebecca will start her medical residency in Anesthesiology at Duke University Medical Center, so we will be moving to Durham, North Carolina in June.
