I'm a software engineer, technologist, leader and general tinkerer based in southeastern Michigan. My hat currently hangs at PawnGuru as CTO and Co-founder.

Speaking of Tinkering..

I'm interested in all sorts of programming languages, new and emerging technologies and anything that can be taken apart. Ruby and Go are my languages of choice but I am a firm believer in using the right tool for the task at hand.

In addition, my years of experience in "big data" have left me with a keen interest in data analysis and processing, systems scaling and all of the wonderful problems associated with flinging terabytes of information.

What else?

When I'm not working, I am hacking on my own projects, practicing martial arts, stomping around the Midwest in search of unique and odd antiques and generally stirring up mayhem where ever I go.
