Interest

I love learning more about the human mind and how people make decisions, sometimes without much reasoning (ie: A Whole New Mind and Buyology). In addition, you'll find me reading books like Freakonomics, Outliers, and anything else by Malcolm Gladwell. Don't get my wrong though, I enjoy fiction works like The Girl

Who Played with Fire and The Art of Racing in the Rain. While I mostly stick to blogs to keep up-to-date on my web development skills, I do like reading Don't Make Me Think, Rocket Surgery Made Easy, CSS Mastery, CSS: The Missing Manual, Clean Code, and Code Complete.

Besides reading, I have fun taking my pit bull, Bailey, out on walks, to parks, and swimming. I also like to take time to appreciate the town by taking a nice bike ride every now and then. When I'm not busy working, reading, playing with Bailey, or riding my bike I take some time for myself and go to the gym. The theme that runs through my mind everyday is "Hakuna Matata."
