This is my supposed to be a page about me. I'm not good at writing about myself or writing in general. Here it goes...

Right now I design, build, and scale digital products that support the C3 Presents/Live Nation portfolio of music festivals. This includes brands such as Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, ACL, and many many others spread across the US, Canada, South America, and Europe. C3 Presents is one of the largest concert promoters in the US.

Before joining C3 I lead technology and marketing for a small, edgy newsprint organization called Free Press Houston.

I am a selt-taught software engineer now navigating through the world of product design and user experience. Everything I have learned is thanks to free massive open online courses such as EdX, Coursera, Khan Academy, and OpenCourseWare from various higher learning institutions.

For anyone interested in learning computer science, I followed curriculum sourced by the Open Source Society University. In addition to that coursework, The Imposter's Handbook is an amazing resource for self-taught programmers. I will be sourcing courses and other resources for career paths & self-improvement in a new project I'm working on called Neue School. More information about that and other projects will be written soon!

Thanks for reading this dumb page. I'll try to update this in a way that's unique to me.
