About Me

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

My work spans over two decades, designing structures in the US and websites all over the world.

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.
