I am a 27 year-old software developer working at a Walpole, MA based company (although I recently moved to Durham, NC), that heavily utilizes Allegro Common Lisp for its 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 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 my wife Rebecca, a first year Duke medical resident (Anesthesiology). We have been together for 12 years and were married on September 17th, 2016 (the day before our 10th anniversary).
