Full Biography

My parents always told me that video games would rot my brains. I beg to differ. It was precisely my fascination with video games that got me where I am today. They piqued my interest in computers, which subsequently got me interested in how they work.

My first foray into software was LUA scripting in World of Warcraft. I was always a logical person, but writing my own macros was my first introduction to formal logic. It got to a point where I could play the game with one button, because I had begun programming AI into my macros that could decide what skill to use based on a variety of conditions.

This interest in macros extended to writing addons for the game, which evolved into an interest in real programming. From that point, it was clear that I was going to college to learn computer science in a rigorous setting. Four and a half years later, I graduated with a B.S. in Computer Science and landed myself a job with Experts Exchange as a developer.
