I am a Software Engineer at Dice.com; a company that uses WordPress to publish some of the best tech content on the web. At Dice, I work with content authors, marketers, and application developers to ensure Tech Professionals can access the highest quality content. Internally at Dice, I have created dozens of themes and plugins to help promote content for Dice. Externally, I even have a plugin on the official WordPress Repository. It’s called, Widget Interlacer and even though it is a simple little plugin, I had a lot of fun building it and going through the process of submitting it to the WordPress Plugin review team.
Before I was an engineer, I served in the US Navy for twelve years as a Navy Diver. I’ve removed our country’s ships’ propellers, inspected shipping lane buoys, and entered submarines through the business end of a torpedo tube. I’ve learned to be comfortable being uncomfortable, which is a large part of writing software.
I live in Folsom, CA with my wife and two sons. As a family, we love being outdoors. We went camping six times in 2017. I like to be outside as much as I like to be in front of my computers. I love cycling for hours at a time and teaching my sons the value of running long distances.
