More than a programmer

Adventure

I am at home in the mountains. I love hiking, snowboarding, and cross country skiing. I jump at any opportunity I have to visit the Rockies and spend most of my vacations above 5000 feet.

Create

I love to build things, it doesn't matter whether those things are physical or virtual. It's always amazed me how much you can achieve if you put your energy into creating something. Whether it's setting tile for a day, building a dock over a weekend, building a pool over 10 days, or developing a piece of software over a couple months, the feeling of accomplishment is the same and it's a feeling I want to pursue for the rest of my life.

Explore

I love trying new things and travelling to new places. I have a propensity to learn and I learn the most when I am experiencing something for the first time. I try to embrace change and force myself into experiences and situations I would normally have a tendency to avoid.
