I come from a small town in California.  From there I went to UC Irvine to get a Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics.  While a college student I spent one of the best years of my life in Grenoble, France.  It was a time of snowboarding, traveling, playing ultimate frisbee, and numerous adventures.

I was so excited about Europe and living abroad that I quickly finished my degree at UC Irvine and immediately joined the Army to be a paratrooper stationed in Italy.  After a few months in Georgia I started my tour in Vicenza, Italy.  Again, there were many adventures and training missions in Germany, Czech Republic, and Austria to name a few.  The biggest adventure was jumping into Northern Iraq as part of the Iraq Campaign in 2003.  However, after my three year tour of duty I was ready to move on to something else.

After a few months back with my family I found a job in Aliso Viejo, CA as a technical support engineer with Dynamic Concepts.  I enjoyed the small-company atmosphere and the Southern California weather.  With the opportunity to work on many different aspects I was most excited about developing custom eCommerce solutions for clients.  Near the end of my employ I was even starting to guide new developers in a team to do even bigger projects.

The urge to continue my education and be close to friends and family next led me out to Colorado to earn an International Masters in Business Administration at the Daniels College of Business in the University of Denver.  Colorado has been great and I'm once again finding adventures in the mountains, the community, and at school.
