I grew up in LaCrosse, WI on the Mississippi River and graduated from the University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse with a major in Information Systems and a minor in Computer Science. In 2003 I moved to AZ and have worked as a software engineer and IT Manager specializing in .Net web applications, SQL server, Umbraco, and the Microsoft Azure Cloud. I have also continued my education earning a MBA, MAED, MIS, and ABD in DMIST. Outside of work I love my family, friends, dogs, cats, and enjoy woodworking, cars and camping.
