Bio

Hello, and thank you for visiting my small piece of the internet!

I'm originally from Pittsburgh, PA and received a bachelor's from DePaul University in Chicago in 2010. Shortly after graduating, I started my professional programming career with Cision in an automated testing role.

Tired of the frigid winters of Chicago, I accepted a remote position with Sabre Hospitality in 2011 and moved to Los Angeles, CA. During my off hours I developed and publicly released a HIPAA compliant SAAS for private care management practices.

With a desire for closer team interaction, I transitioned into an on-site QA position with Guidance Software in 2015. Unfortunately, and just as I started receiving mentoring to move into a development role, I was laid off due to downsizing and the eventual sale of the company to OpenText in 2017.

Within two weeks I accepted a QA role with CoStar and was promoted to Software Engineer in Test within three months. While with CoStar I completed a Master's in Software Engineering at Cal State Fullerton and developed an open source automated test result dashboard.

In an interesting turn of events, I was contacted in March of 2019 with an offer to return to Guidance Software (now OpenText) as a Software Engineer. Since finally fulfilling the career goal of moving into a traditional engineering role, I have focused all of my effort into delivering features for their endpoint security product.
