I grew up in West Virginia and spent most of my time in the garage with my dad or taking on home renovation projects with my mom.  I attended college WVU Tech for mechanical engineering and discovered my calling. This is also where I met my wonderful wife. Upon graduation in 2009, we moved to Morgantown where I attended WVU.  I was studying for my masters degree in mechanical engineering but left in 2012 for a job offer in Pittsburgh.  We've been here ever since and love the city.  

In my off-time I love to kayak, bike, camp, work on home improvement projects, and travel the world.
