Time is what keeps everything from happening all at once.


I’m a software developer, teacher, musician, and creative writer. I work at Eastern Washington University where I enjoy programming and creating enterprise solutions to complex problems. While riding a city bus to and from EWU, I carve out time to be an online adjunct professor for Brigham Young University – Idaho. I teach database administration and cloud technologies to students from around the world. I’m a Linux and an open source enthusiast. I sing and write music for a band named Glue the Giant.

My greatest joys come from being a husband and father. I find that life is magical, even with all its difficulties, and I often ponder on the meanings present in the universe. I’m a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
