Hello! Hmm. Well, I’m pretty good at talking about myself, turns out. So here’s a bunch of information, professional and personal.
I enjoy helping people, writing code, and helping people write code. I am the Director of Engineering at Olio, where I get to help people, write code, and help people write code that helps people. Olio is made up of people with whom it is great to work (and play, honestly). Ask me about it. I’ll happily tell you more!
I’ve been on a couple podcasts for professional reasons:
Oh, some other stuff. I founded IndyHackers, a 501(c)3 dedicated to the education and growth of individuals in the Indiana tech community. I also organize the Indianapolis Ruby Brigade in which we get together once a month to chat about the Ruby programming language, and programming in general. Yeah, I like starting communities. I have hosted a mechanical keyboard meetup, started a little community around the game KeyForge (which quickly dwindled, but that’s okay), a couple others that were but brief flashes in the pan.
I have many too many hobbies. I dabble with various musical instruments, like guitar, bass, saxophone, and washboard (not joking!). I like to read a lot (find me on Goodreads). I already mentioned board games (in the form of KeyForge, but I enjoy many different tabletop games). I also on-and-off get obsessed with tabletop roleplaying games. I like backpacking/hiking/camping. These are all things you might see here. The others, probably not so much. Maybe.
Most importantly: I’m lucky enough to have a lovely wife, Melissa, a son, Zane, and a daughter, Aubrey.
I actually enjoy getting email. So please email me.
