Summary

I am currently a student at the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire persuing a degree in Computer Science. I am currently working at LTS in the web development department, and by using the Ruby on Rails framework, I build and maintain web applications that are used by various departments on campus.

I also balance my time between multiple musical groups, playing percussion for various Concert Bands, Orchestrahs, Jazz Bands, UWEC Marching Band, and other various bands and musical playing opportunities. I treat everyone as a chance to continue to play my instrument when otherwise I wouldn’t get the opportunity.

Currently I am looking to find position on which I not only can support myself, but provide support for family and friends, and do that in environment that I love and am proud to work at day after day.
