I am a 26-year-old Texan with a great girlfriend, a 6-year-old son, and a newborn daughter.

I am a core contributor to the WordPress open-source project.

I am working as a Code Wrangler at Automattic on the Mercury team. I am currently spending most of my days writing JavaScript for the new ReactJS powered parts of WordPress.com.

I have served as a board member for the Children’s Aid Society.

I graduated from Midwestern State University in May 2015 with a Bachelors of Arts in Computer Science.

While at MSU, I:

  • Won 3rd place at the Idea MSU Competition (a business idea competition for students) in 2012 and 2013
  • Served as President of the Midwestern State University chapter of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM)
  • Researched an algorithm to complete puzzles based only on the outer edges of the puzzle pieces while at UGROW
  • Researched automated testing strategies while in the UNT Bug Wars program
