Who Am I?
I am a 90's kid that grew up playing games, playing outside, finding my way through life. My full time job is working in IT for a medium sized company. I find my passion is in playing video games, developing applications, and generally enjoying life. When I'm not at home working on some random project or gaming I can usually be found on my road bike or up in the mountains of Washington State. I don't like to fit into one particular mold. I'm most definitely an extrovert and love meeting new people. I love getting outside and hiking, fishing, hunting, riding my bicycles (mountain and road), and camping. I love to travel but between work, my dog, and streaming I haven't found the time to get out.
I got into cycling in 2016 after a health problem forced me to change my lifestyle. I wouldn't change it for the world. This may sound preachy to some but I found a new passion and love for the sport of cycling and it saved my life. I'm not shy about sharing my experience and hope that my experience will help some of those around me that may be struggling with the same thing. There is nothing more important than your health. If you have any questions about it feel free to ask!
I primarily ride a full carbon Specialized Roubaix with a Shimano Ultegra groupset. I try to ride on almost a daily basis and put in nearly 2000 miles last year. I hope to double that next year.
When I was a kid I grew up with consoles, board games, and PCs. I'll never forget loading up Chessmaster 3000 in DOS. I grew up with The Mario Brothers and Link dreaming of Princess Zelda. I remember playing Link's Awakening on the morning drive to Ski Racing Training.
I develop applications for varying uses. I'm able to develop in C++, C#, Swift, Java, HTML5, PHP, Python, and a multitude of other languages. I love learning and taking on more and more challenges. Though for some reason got a little lazy with my own site.

To give you a bit of an idea of who I am, I want to share some of my favorite pictures with you!
