Lead Architect

I believe all of life's problems can be simplified and answered. Solving problems and making lives better is what I live for. I enjoy using React and Elixir because they make it easy to simplify logic into understandable, functional paradigms.

I am a father of three girls and a boy. I enjoy running and playing video games. I am very excited that I just entered the diamond leaugue in StarCraft.
