About Me

About Me...

I am a software engineer currently living just south of Nashville, TN. I grew up in Clarksville, TN, which is where I met my wife of nearly four years. I enjoy programming, retro-gaming, geocaching, and learning new things. I'm currently attempting to teach myself how to 3D model using Blender (I'm terrible). Please reach out! I'm always willing to connect.
