I’ve been a computer nerd ever since I was young. At 15 I taught myself how to code so I could develop a website for friends and I to share funny stories. It wasn’t much, but it was the beginning of my passion for web development. I’ve always been intrigued by the idea that the code I write and the websites I develop can reach and influence people around the world.

In 2013 I helped co-found a company called onCater, a startup that is building an online platform to connect meeting and event organizers to great local catering options. We’ve seen the amount of time and effort it takes to cater an event and we think we can make it easier.  At the end of 2013, onCater graduated from Founders Institute and we’re looking to take things to the next level and acquire an initial round of funding.

When I’m not glued to my computer screen developing the most awesome things on the internet, you’ll most likely find me at the closest CrossFit affiliate. I started doing CrossFit in December 2013 and have been addicted to the amazing workouts, fun atmosphere, and amazing community ever since. I like to think of myself as a very strong individual, both mentally and physically, but CrossFit has helped me push myself to a whole new level I never thought was possible. A lot of people see CrossFit as a sport that challenges you against other people, but I think of it as a challenge against myself. Each and every time I walk out of that gym, I’m a bit stronger than I was before I walked in. And that’s how I like to live my life – each and everyday I want to be better than the last.
