About Me

Personal

I spent most of my childhood in Fairfax VA, right out side of Washington, D.C. and later in Orlando, Florida. My family moved to Atlanta, GA when I was in high school.

I taught myself how to program when I was about 11 using Microsoft QBasic, on a IBM 386 running Windows 3.1. I started out programming games, screensavers and various other applications. Over the course of the next few years, I moved up and taught myself C/C++ for windows application development and finally Java before college.

I attended Kennesaw State University, and Graduated Cum Laude, with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science. During my time at KSU, I was the vice president and the president of the student chapter of the Association of Computing Machinery (ACM). I also was in the Presidential Fellows Program for a year, and I participated in the Student Technology Advisors (STARS) program for over 3 years. In addition I was an active member of the Georgia District Circle K the college level Kiwanis Club, and severed as the Technology Chair for my local chapter for several years, and on the State board for one year.

I recently met the girl of my dreams, and even more recently married her in Alpharetta, GA on November 13, 2010. The picture on the right was taken on our wedding day, close to the historic Marietta Square (which is also the site of our first date and the proposal). We meet while attending Buckhead Church, part of NorthPoint Community Church.

Today we live near Atlanta, GA, with our mixed breed dog, Ruby.
