For ten years I taught philosophy. By all accounts, I excelled at communicating history’s most complicated ideas with simplicity and enthusiasm. Indeed, I still love philosophy and the students I was lucky enough to teach. But teaching the same classes every year can grow tiresome even when you love the subject.


So in 2012 I went back to college to become a Software Engineer. I went first to Edmonds Community College where I earned certifications in Java and C/C++, and took as much math and Linux as I could fit in.


Then I enrolled in University of Washington Bothell’s Graduate Certificate in Software Design and Development program (a program for those who already posses a college degree or significant industry experience.) In one year we covered not only all of the technical subjects of a BS in Computer Science but also methods pertaining to the software development life-cycle taught by Eric Brechner of Xbox.


The Future:


Of all my interests in software development, no area interests me as much as mobile development. Perhaps it’s my inner Trekkie or perhaps it’s my desire to infuse the everyday with computing power – to make tedious jobs delightful.


I began a Udacity course sponsored by Google for Android development and this Fall I will begin an University of Washington Professional and Continuing Education three course program in Android development.


In the meantime, I am looking to get my hands dirty, ideally, with real world mobile development.




My priorities are focused mainly on experiences. I’m looking for partners, colleagues, and friends. I’m looking to build the future of mobile technology with fantastic people, in exciting environments with inspiring applications.


Anyone can work in a cubicle – divorced from human interaction and purpose. But I demand more for my working life. I demand enthusiasm, comradery, innovation, and, purpose.
