There’s always been something exciting to me about creating and discovering new things. Taking an idea and making it a reality is incredibly fun, and the unique challenges that come with each new idea mean I am never bored. The web is a platform that’s accessible to anyone regardless of device or operating system, and new capabilities mean there’s always something new to learn and incorporate into the next site.

I was born and raised in West Michigan, and after a couple years on the East Coast for college, I’m back in Grand Rapids working and finishing up my degree. In my spare time, I like to hack on whatever project currently has my interest (sometimes my own projects, sometimes other people’s). When I’m not in front of a computer, you can find me playing guitar, reading, writing, and/or doing something outdoors like hiking, mountain biking, or backpacking.

What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.
