What got you interested in a career in software development?
Growing up I loved puzzles and just working with computers in general. Working with software feels like working on a moving puzzle – always a rush getting that final piece where it needs to go to complete the whole picture.

My favorite project that I have worked on is my current one; helping Jack Henry with its next generation fraud prevention and detection software.
Tell us about your life outside of Core10… Family life? Pets? Hobbies?
After my girlfriend moved in I can now say I have SIX dogs! Trust me, the emphasis on six is necessary – most of them are at least half German Shepard. If I am not herding the dogs, I have a garden in the backyard which is taking up a lot of my time. Currently, we have tomatoes, potatoes, cucumbers, corn, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries planted. Looking forward to planting okra this upcoming week and maybe a couple of grape plants!
How do you give back to the community?
Kindness! I’m not perfect, but I do my best to treat everyone I come across with kindness and respect. You never know how a person’s day is going and just being nice can go a long way in improving someone’s day.
What is something other people find most surprising to learn about you?
I’m going to be a first-time dad in August! It’s a boy!
What is your favorite thing about the place you call home?
I live relatively close to Nashville, so if I ever need to pay a visit to the city the drive isn’t too overwhelming.
Anything else you’d like to share???
I didn’t think coming up with baby names was so difficult.
