I believe that programming is a craft. My goal is to continuously study this craft, and to always refine my thinking and my execution while practicing it. I have a decade of experience and even though I have come a long way since I started, there’s always something fresh to study that I can add to my toolbox.
Software development is a wonderful discipline that requires creativity, ingenuity, and logic. It’s wonderful because a programmer can sit at a computer and literally create new value from nothing. I get a strong sense of satisfaction whenever I’m able to use my code to solve real world problems that affect real people and businesses.
When I’m not working, I like to continue growing as a programmer by having side projects. Each side project has given me new insights and experiences. You can read more about some of my favorite projects here.
I am very happy to be living in Wisconsin with my lovely wife, our toddler, and our dog.

I launched Quakkels.com on February 5th, 2017 after blogging on a different platform since 2013. This current version of my blog uses Hugo, a static site generator written in Go. I host using GitHub Pages. I wrote the theme for this blog and it can be found on GitHub.
