About me

After wrapping up my time at NC State, I am now a solutions engineer for a startup cloud services provider in Raleigh, NC. When I'm not nerding out over cool new stuff in the datacenter, I'm probably spending time with my wife and dog or working on some sort of DIY project. I'm always working on something, whether it's building something in the lab or in my garage.

I'm an engineer who simply enjoys solving problems—whether it's at work or anywhere else in life.

With an engineering background, it makes sense that I love designing and simply making things better. I enjoy the challenge of learning new technologies and am extremely quick to master new concepts.
