About

Just an assortment of things about me, since Facebook isn’t going to provide you many clues.

How I Keep the Lights On

I’m currently a Front End Engineer at Northwestern Mutual, where I build React apps. I was last a Web Application Developer at GS in Glendale, WI. Prior to this, I went to Milwaukee School of Engineering two times; first for Mechanical Engineering, then a handful of years later for Computer Engineering. As a Mechanical Engineer I led a team to design most of the lighting you might find if you are ever so lucky to get a ride on a Gulfstream G650, in addition to a wide variety of other LED aircraft lighting. I like to build web sites for companies that want modern, engaging customer experiences.
