Originally from Anchorage Alaska, I attended school at Eastern Washington University and graduated
in 2012 with a BS in Computer Science. Alongside school I enjoyed running, rock climbing and studying foreign languages.
My passion for the outdoors and mountains led me to move to Salt Lake City UT in 2014.
Eastern Washington University
During my studies at EWU my advanced coursework was in graphical interfaces and network security.
I interned at the Washington State Digital Archives as well as led a school project to upgrade the gym
class management and grading system (where I also worked on campus).
Glacier Services Automation
After graduation I returned to Alaska to work for Glacier Services Inc, the largest Alaskan-owned oil field automation
services firm. I developed high-speed graphic displays that are used by plant operators and production optimization engineers on the
real-time supervisory control and data acquisition systems that Conono Phillips Alaska uses to control and meter oil and gas fields.
In 2012 I joined RiskLens, a startup focused on building and providing tools and training for quantification of
information security risk analyses.
Here I was involved in every aspect of the software development process including design, architecture,
coding, bugfixes and maintenance. My primary area of ownership was the reporting suite which gave me the
opportunity to grow my skills as a front end developer.
Mid - 2015 I joined Backcountry.com as a software engineer on a team focused on replacing an aging mobile app.
In addition to providing maintenance debugging support for legacy systems, my role was primarly building
the codebase and infrastrucutre for an ionicframework mobile app.
It was my experience here working alongside developers on a site
with millions of pageviews which led to a passion for performance engineering.
In Summer 2016 I joined InsideSales.com to help them innovate the next generation of sales acceleration technology.
This included systems and client side programming for enterprise customers and preparing for growth into local and international markets.
On this team I got to experience enterprise DevOps, management, deployment and the entire product lifecycle at scale firsthand.
At the start of 2017 I started at Artemis Health as a Sr. Software Engineer, helping the small team develop a healthcare data platform.
This platform consists of several applications that allow a view into healthcare benifits provider and member data, easily visualize trends, cost saving measures and facilitates decision making and reporting.
Here I get to experiment with front-end technologies and grow and apply my skills specifically in developing high performance webapps and data visualizations.
High Peak Solutions
2016 and Beyond! - I founded High Peak Solutions to refocus my work on front end performance.
As I have grown during my career, I have come to understand the importance of accessability and mobile programming
and have seen firsthand the shift in the way web media is consumed.
My goal is to create software that focuses on front end performance to deliver powerful, far reaching
software that has the ability to both be useful but more importantly engage users in modern ways.
