About Me

I'm currently living in the southern part of Texas right along the border. I hop back and forth between working on client projects and focusing on a few exciting ventures.


When I find free time I like jump rope and do some other active things. It is not always easy, but I try to stick to a keto diet 🍳 🥓.


Even when I am not working, I still catch myself thinking (or daydreaming) about how to improve current projects. I keep an open mind so I can find ways to take my development and management skills to the next level.
