I am a lifelong nerd that started my computing journey building a Heathkit H89 computer with my dad. Once we got it running, I learned how to program it. Since then I have worked as a professional programmer with C/C++ writing user interfaces for engineering software that simulates and visualizes water process in water sheds and groundwater systems.
I now work as a civil engineer turned project engineer managing oil and gas projects often valued at over 100 million dollars. I am one of the few people in my company that uses a Mac for all my work amongst 10s of 1000s of people all using Windows PCs.
