Interests

Personal

My favorite hobbies revolve around getting a pump at the gym, writing, and reading. My preferred genres include personal development and philosophy, with some of my dearest titles including Meditations , As a Man Thinketh, and The Prince.

While my reading preference is rooted in non-fiction, I have a personal love-hate relationship with fictional writing. I’ve recently completed an +80,000 word magical-realism manuscript about a young man, Seth Maverick, who comes to grips with his nation as he rises through the military ranks, and begins to question government oversight and the ban on The Articles of Power, supernatural abilities nurtured by affirmations. Click here to check out the first chapter! I have plans to write 2 sequels, but for now I’ll stick to writing in my journal.

At the same time, I relish opportunities to hike with my fiancé, Maria. Some of my favorite hikes include escalating Mt. Mitchell, enjoying the wild horses across the Grayson Highlands, and absorbing the surreal views throughout The Great Smoky Mountains.


Professional

Through many conversations and pressing in to my network via Linkedin, Veterati, and Operation Code, I've come to love software development. I continue to commit many hours each day to studying and practicing code, and press into my mentorship from industry professionals to sharpen my vision.
