About Me

A Little Bio

We only live once therefore I am making the best of my life looking for a career that does not feel like work. As an avid software engineer who enjoys programming high level concepts and creating tests harnesses similar to my work at Mentor Graphics I hope to indirectly improve this world by creating and testing software (DevOps).
In my free time I'm found commuting by bicycle to friends and family for exciting games, delicious food, and great times.
