Speaker Bio:

I've been amazed at software development since seeing a Commodore Vic-20 at my friends house and going "Hey! What's that?"
20 GOTO 10
And I was in love. Since then, I have spent time coding Pascal, Fortran, C, C++, Java, C#, Javascript, Typescript, and others I can't even remember. Development... makes my soul happy.
I love to learn and adapt to the new ways of developing software ("Wait.. what is this 'var' thing? Why don't you just put 'int'? Ok.. I'll try it").

I have worked at Progressive Insurance for over 22 years. I am now a Software Developer Lead. This means I get to dabble in a code some and orchestrate a team of developers. I enjoy going into work to see what direction Progressive is going in IT and being able to help shape that future.

Interests: Avid reader, love to learn about anything I'm not good at, programming, video games, watching my son sports, and amateur video editor for son's sports.
