A Brief Introduction

I’m a married Software Engineer living in Seattle who is originally from Chicago’s western suburbs. I’m a 2007 graduate of MSOE‘s Software Engineering program and recently began a new job on Microsoft’s Exchange team and am working specifically on Outlook Web App. I’m currently working primarily with C#, HTML, CSS, and some JavaScript, but in the past, I’ve also worked significantly with Java applications built on Oracle databases. In my free time, I enjoy photography and more web development with PHP, MySQL, HTML, CSS, Javascript, and jQuery; my largest personal project has been for my dad’s business, DDM Garage Doors.

One of the authors of the Bible, Paul, writes, “If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God. If anyone ministers, let him do it as with the ability which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever” (1 Peter 4:11 NKJV). Though this web site is about me and who I am, my greatest desire is not that I look good but that it act as an instrument through whose music God uses me to proclaim Christ, His death and resurrection for the sins of the world, and the truths of His Word. My greatest desire is that my life would say with Paul, “For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” To learn more, I’d encourage you to read The Only thing in Life that Really Matters.

Please keep in mind that all content on my site reflects my own personal opinions, not those of my employer, Microsoft.
