I grew up around Richmond, VA where I attended the Governor's School for Government and International Studies and then the University of Richmond. I took two years off after my freshman year to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Hungary, then finished a BS in mathematics. I have an ME in systems engineering from the University of Virginia (2006-2007), an MA in economics from the University of Michigan (2009-2011), and became a Certified Analytics Professional in 2014.
I once helped start an indie game development studio, but most of my career has been spent doing business analysis in a variety of fields: health and life insurance, consumer banking and real estate, and sales and distribution. I am currently Chief Scientist for a boutique consulting and software development firm.
I'm living in Williamsburg while my awesome wife completes her PhD in computer science. I've got two children that I love very much, and a few animals that I think are OK. I've been blogging off and on since about 2006, but I started getting much more serious about my writing in 2012 when I launched Difficult Run. Writing highlights are broken down below.
This is the group blog I started in November 2012. I usually post one long, original piece a week. I also post shorter links and comments to other pieces daily.
Times And Seasons is one of the oldest Mormon group blogs in existence. I started blogging as a guest in December 2012 and joined as a permanent blogger in March 2013. Depending on how busy I am with other projects, I either post every Monday morning or every other Monday morning.
I've written a review on every book that I've read since joining Goodreads sometime in 2011. So, it's a lot of reviews.
