Hi 👋 and welcome to my website! I'm passionate about family, software, economics, and startups. If that sounds interesting to you let's chat.


I'm living life in KCMO with my wife and kids. Currently building and leading platform engineering efforts at Carputty where we're re-engineering auto finance.

I graduated from Kansas State University in December 2012 with a bachelor's degree in Information Systems and a minor in Business.

I truly enjoy my life, my line of work, and am always looking for ways to challenge, grow, and improve.
