About Me

CREATIVE | TECHNICAL | PROFESSIONAL

 

I'm a Solutions Engineer at GitHub.  Prior to that I worked mainly on the infrastructure side of cloud computing, managed Exchange Servers and built websites.  In my spare time I'm into everything audio/visual.  I take photos, shoot films, write and produce music, and am part of the crazy team of volunteers that make Dragon Con TV happen every labor day weekend.
