About Me

Born and raised in Appleton, Wisconsin I was inundated with technology from an early age – building my first PC at 8 years old. I was quickly drawn to the habitual troubleshooting process around Information Technology. Taking courses at Fox Valley Technical College for Web Development & Design, and obtaining my CIW Associate Certificate in 2010.

I’ve been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to work in with fortune 500 companies, as well as the head of IT for global companies. This has provided me both a broad and deep understanding of system architecture, code development and deployments, security, and general system engineering.

Starting my professional career as a paid-intern at Miller Electric Mfg. Co., then transitioned to working as a Data Systems Analyst for Schneider National, Inc. This eventually leads me to become the IT Coordinator & WebMaster for ASP, Inc. Wanting more work/life balance I accepted a remote Web System Engineer position at Wells Fargo.

Currently, I’m working at Wells Fargo and taking on FOSS projects as I’m able to in my free time.
