Hi there! I’m a 25-year-old software developer and web designer from Kentucky. I work at CirrusMio, helping to develop CivicRush. I enjoy programming, playing video games, and reading. When I have a free moment, I’m often found playing Skyrim, Dragon Age: Origins, Animal Crossing, or The Sims 3, or hanging out with my boyfriend Jon. I also enjoy games like Dominion, Settlers of Catan, and Carcassonne. I play Dungeons and Dragons as well, fourth edition; I’m an elven healer cleric. I got my B.S. and Master’s in computer science from the University of Kentucky.
Music-wise, I use Spotify and Turntable.FM a lot to find new music in genres like electronic, indie pop, and trip-hop. I listen to music almost constantly throughout the day, whether I’m at my desk at work, on the couch at home, or driving. My three favorite bands of the moment are Yelle, Florence + the Machine, and Lana Del Ray.
As someone who enjoys programming and is a perfectionist about it, sites like Stack Overflow are a godsend. I participate there a lot, particularly when I’m stumped on something at work. Some of my projects can be found on Github as well, including my Master’s project. I also can be found in the WordPress Plugin Directory.
With respect to entertainment, I like Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, and American Horror Story. I like several of Hayao Miyazaki‘s movies along with movies like The Matrix, 300, The Count of Monte Cristo, and Snatch. The best books I’ve read recently include the A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin and The Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan.
