Technology is the cornerstone of my daily existence. As a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin, I spent my career as a student immersed in a culture of bleeding edge research and experimental studies. As an information technology analyst for the exploration and production company ConocoPhillips, I contribute to a culture of technological innovation and knowledge sharing.
I began my college career studying English, but I quickly changed my major to computer science. It was truly an honor to study with some of the most brilliant minds in the field and be part of such a prestigious program. After falling in love with the Japanese language despite its intense difficulty, I added Asian studies as a second major.
I tinker with code and share with the world. I've been a programmer since I was fourteen. I'm still constantly exploring new APIs, tools, and technologies.
I write about the unique experiences I've had. My life has taken me to some amazing places and led me to some extraordinary people.
I study Japanese and try to teach others. I'm still a far cry from fluency, but I still strive to share my journey with those those as passionate as I am.
