About Me

I’m an engineer living in Seattle, Washington with my wife and two sons.

I like efficiency, human-minded solutions, writing, craft beer, sustainability, progressive issues, cycling, yoga, meditation, etc. Sometimes I tweet.

Engineering Websites & Structures

My journey to engineering started in high school, where I took all the computer programming classes, wood shop, drafting, and eventually started working with my instructor in a custom elective course – going around the school and troubleshooting computer issues. My love of coding, engineering, and math was founded there and continued to flourish in college.

I graduated from the University of Washington in 2007 with a B.S. in Civil Engineering (focused on Structural Engineering), one course shy of having a minor in mathematics. Along the way I continued to build websites – first for myself, then friends and colleagues, and eventually small businesses and non-profits.

In my senior year I started reading and blogging about sustainability. Blogging lead me rather quickly to WordPress, and the very first thing I did with my new WordPress-powered blog was create a custom theme. I’ve been hooked ever since.

Since then I’ve put in almost 20 years of engineer consulting: building websites and designing structures of all shapes and sizes.

Today I’m a full time software engineer maintaining large WordPress sites.
