I’m was born in the beautiful Foothills of the Application Mountains in North Carolina. I attended Western Carolina University and graduated with a B.S. in Computer Science and Mathematics.
I’ve been actively developing (or trying to, anyway) software since my early teens. During my exploration of the field of computer science I’ve written applications in many languages, of these my favorites are: C, C#, C++, Assembly, Scheme and Java – pretty much in that order.
I’m a some-what active member of the stack exchange community. Computer programming, personal fitness and finance are my favorite hobbies and I really like the format of the SE sites, so it’s just a natural fit for me. I also enjoy working on Project Euler problems and contributing to open sources projects on CodePlex and GitHub when I can find the time.
Always looking for interesting ideas for freelance work, contact me on Build It With Me.
My professional CV is also available online.

“Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘Press On’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”
– Calvin Coolidge
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
– Theodore Roosevelt, The Man in the Area – April 23, 1910
