I am a IT Leader in Boise, Idaho. As the Director of IT and Development for Impact Group I currently help my team navigate the challenges of our rapid growth. After studing functional programming and discover Clojure, I introducted it into our envirnment where it has become our primary language, powering our bakend, frontend and even or mobile app.
In the past I’ve had the pleasure of being involved in the sadly defunct Mendicant University, first as a student and later as a mentor, which went a long way towards developing my Ruby skills. While most of Mendicant has drifted apart, I still keep in touch with a number of the members.
On my own time, I’ve designed my own aquaponics system and taken up beekeeping. I recently bought a house with quarter acre where I’m hoping to do some light homesteading, growing some cover crops and raising ducks.
