I’m a software architect/computer programmer/writer living in Pittsburgh, PA. I grew up in Orange, Texas, and at various times have lived in the DC and NYC metro areas along with Morgantown, WV.

I currently have my own business Much Better Than Cats, LLC, where I do consulting work for two long-term clients.

I’ve been a gamer my entire life. Currently I’m involved in a Hackmaster tabletop campaign, play board/card games once a month or so (most likely Cards Against Humanity), and video games on my gaming PC (Ryzen 9 5900X, Radeon RX 6800 XT, Dell 32 Curved 4K UHD Monitor).

Games I played in 2021 included Cyberpunk 2077, Pillars of Eternity, Tyranny, Mass Effect Legendary Edition, Pathfinder: Kingmaker. I also spend way too much time on my iPad playing Seeker’s Notes.

I lived two blocks away from Ground Zero on 9/11.
