I was the project lead and a contributing developer and artist to the OhioFirst.Net Next Generation Command games.

I like to travel.
When I do, I take photos and write about what I have learned.
My most recent adventures are previewed below.
I spent much of 2018 without a permanent address, traveling often for work and otherwise spending the rest of my time up and down the West Coast in Canada, the US and Mexico. 2018 was a very chaotic period of my life, and it seemed like a perfectly sensible choice at the time to spontaneously travel to Kyrgyzstan during Thanksgiving, and celebrate the American holiday alone in Almaty’s sister city, Bishkek, that I had always been so curious about. So I packed up my entire home, which was a suitcase and a backpack full of electronics and began my journey.
In July 2019, I traveled to Cambodia. There I partied in nightclubs across the country, explored ancient temples, hiked through jungles, visited a non-profit that I have long donated to, made a number of new friends, ate some of the strangest food I’ve ever encountered, visited the site of the worst atrocity committed in human history and last, but not least, returned to the United States extremely sick and about ten pounds lighter with an intestinal parasite.

I live in Washington DC.

My day job involves making tools that help heroes save lives.
