In my personal time I enjoy trying to stay up on latest technologies and trends. To do this I follow podcasts, newsfeeds, and various online forums. I also enjoy taking formal classes or following online tutorials.
I also take breaks from the tech world by reading and watching videos about tiny living, minimalism, and gardening. During the summer months I can be found in my garden, or in the mountains hiking.
My personal site is my showcase for some of my personal projects that don't really fit into my professional site. I tinker with micro-controllers, robotics, and new programming languages often.
It's also a place for me to share my various interests or adventures. If I find a new hike, go on a fun horseback ride, or take some cool photographs I share it all here.
During the day I work for PatraCompany Visual Marketing Solutions. I am the technical lead which takes on the roles of lead developer, systems administrator, and project manager. I really enjoy my position with PatraCompany and look forward to working with their talented team each day.
I also do freelance projects from time to time. These projects include simple websites, e-commerce, data-driven web applications, and consulting. I maintain a small professional site in order to share my professional portfolio of both freelance and PatraCompany development work. Please check out my portfolio to view some of these items.

I have a small hobby farm where I care for a few critters including three horses, two nubian goats, and three dogs. I'm also enjoying caring for waterfowl, until recently had various types of ducks and a goose on the farm. I had to relocate them until I can devise a predator proof pen to keep them safe.
I maintain a website where I write short blogs about the farm. Topics include animal care, DIY projects, and lessons I've learned while taking care of livestock. Click here to read my latest blog article.
