I'm a software developer, photographer, artist, traveler, critter, gamer, and avid D&D enthusiast. So, basically I'm a giant nerd!
Software engineering is my passion. I love building with code, and I want to create things that help make the world better a place. AT CIRT I focus on special projects and creating custom installations of the CIRT API.
My background prior to software engineering is rooted in more 'aesthetic' disciplines. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism (specializing in video production) from the University of Georgia, and a Master of Fine Arts in Photography from the Savannah College of Art & Design.
My greatest artistic inspirations can be found in the works of Ansel Adams, Dieter Appelt, Joseph Beuys, the philosophies of Roland Gérard Barthes, the complete imaginative storytelling prowess of the Critical Role cast, and the writing of both Neil Gaiman & Nick Flynn.
My personal philosophy has long read: Light. Changes. Everything.
