Software Engineer Lead at Polaris Alpha

I'm a Software Engineer Lead living in beautiful Colorado Springs, CO. I got my start developing websites in 2004 when I joined my first gaming team while playing Star Trek: Voyager - Elite Force. The team needed a website so I talked to my dad who was a hobbyist webmaster at the time and he set me up with the tools he was using. The rest is history.


M.Eng., Software Engineering -- University of Colorado at Colorado Springs
B.S., Information Systems Management -- Colorado Christian University
A.A.S., Space Operations Technology -- Community College of the Air Force

The Site

This site is hosted on Heroku and it's running the Ghost blogging platform. I'm utilizing Cloudinary for file hosting because Heroku doesn't provide persistent file storage. The theme is based off of the Poole framework which was created for Jekyll and created by @mdo. I've since ported the framework over to Ghost.
