A lifelong technophile, I develop branded and niche software for discerning clients, including government and private organizations. With more than 100 titles published on the App Store, I revel in collaborating with fellow coders who share my passion for building incredible software.
I am a former Army Ranger who married his high school sweetheart—a phenomenal woman—and am the proud father of three young adults. When not coding I enjoy breaking bread with friends, volunteering, the arts, the great outdoors, and shepherding our four rescue cats. I also am a diehard Crimson Tide football fan and routinely binge-watch epic television series.
