Bermeo Heights Express (5-star rated on the Oculus store ) is the first VR app I produced (first released in 2019). An immersive, introspective, and calming journey by rail. It's also available on the retired Google Daydream platform.

From 2020 to 2022 I was a Senior Engineer at cissdm.com where I developed sophisticated SD-WAN software that helps manage the network infrastructure of some of the most recognizable corporations at scale.

Before that, I operated my own successful engineering and consultation business for 7 years in Oregon, the Bay Area, and Southern California.

During this time I built a form-building e-signing app that continues to close thousands of real estate deals every day, as well an automated phone pre-screener system (IVR) that some of the biggest names in the clinical trials industry such as Pfizer continue to rely on to pre-screen thousands of patients into potentially life-saving clinical trials every month.

In 2008-2013 I worked as a back-end developer for a number start-ups, ad agencies, and eventually at high end web agencies in Portland, Oregon. During this time, I was one of the team of two back-end developers who brought the webby-award-honored official tourism site for my home state of Oregon, traveloregon.com. I oversaw countless deployments of production dot com websites for a laundry list of top recognizable brands.

I earned a Bachelors of Computer & Information Science from the University of Oregon in 2007.
