Born in Joliet, Illinois I grew up in St. Louis, Missouri. I graduated from the University of Illinois-Urbana Champaign in 2001 with a Bachelors of Engineering in Computer Science and Johns Hopkins in 2002 with a Masters in Computer Science. I’m now the Chief Architect for a software firm in Durham, North Carolina. I’ve also built FuelFrog to help people track gas mileage.

I met my lovely wife Libby in high school and we married in 2003.

Our son Clayton was born August 2008 and enjoys food, diaper changes, and rocking.
