I grew up in Massachusetts in a family with 7 kids. After studying Computer Science at Boston University, I made my way to the west coast to explore the tech world. I now live in Santa Rosa with my lovely wife Mia, our young daughter Claire, and our troublemaker cat Wellington.
I've had lots of hobbies for as long as I can remember. I picked up coding in middle school when I was fascinated by the pages I could pull up in a web browser. I didn't foresee that this hobby would eventually define my professional life.
Aside from my love of programming, I spend a lot of time learning and practicing guitar and piano. In my early to mid twenties I spent time in a band called The Release before my life got busy and I settled into being a bedroom musician.
I'm also an avid chess player. I love seeing my rating climb and I average a few games a day from my phone.
