My wife and I live in Oregon with our cat, Clara. My background is in web development and music education. Currently, I am completing my undergraduate studies in Computer Science at the University of the People. I am the lead software engineer at Phenomena Learning, a company that makes mental-model building possible for students and educators, even in a remove environment. In between studies, practice, keyboard-pounding sessions, and volunteer work, I maintain a private studio and teach with local music programs. Needless to say, I drink a great deal of coffee.
