Early life

I was born in Cleveland, Ohio in early 1991, and lived in the Cleveland area for my full childhood.

For most of those years I was homeschooled, but when I was 16, halfway through 10th grade, I switched to a local private high school.


I attended Rochester Institute of Technology for a B.S. in Information Security and Forensics. At RIT I was involved with several student clubs and organizations including Computer Science House, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship and the RIT Linux Users' Group.


After graduating from RIT and spending two weeks wandering around Australia and New Zealand just for the fun of it, I started at Datto where I remain employed today. I always said I wanted a quiet cottage in the woods but with fast Internet and close proximity to an urban center; my current residence affords just that and more.
