I am currently a Software Engineer at Qualtrics working on the Developer Experience team.

My personal mission is to improve development experiences and productivity across all of Qualtrics and ultimately for software engineers everywhere.

Prior to Qualtrics, I worked as a Software Security Engineer at Sandia National Laboratories. I was focused on building applications and system integrations to support cyber resiliency R&D, experimentation, and execution.

I have a Master's degree in Information Security (MSIS) from Carnegie Mellon University, with an emphasis in system-level code security, reverse engineering, and exploitation. I also have a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science from Southern Utah University. But beyond my degrees, I have always had a deep thirst for knowledge, to which I attribute the lion’s share of my most valuable experiences.

I'm also more than just my profession. I am married to a strong, amazing woman and we have two beautiful girls. I am active in my chrurch and help out there most weeks, usually teaching the younger kids with my wife. My other hobbies include; Running and playing various Tabletop RPGs (TTRPGs), honing my software development skills with side projects, fiddling with my home lab, dabbling in indie game development, and mountain biking or hiking on weekends.
