I'm a software engineer at Microsoft working on testing the next version of Windows. I've been programming since I was 9 or 10, starting with C & Basic. I moved on to Java, Python, ML, Ruby, and C++ (in that order). I'm currently learning Clojure in hopes of finding a language that I actually enjoy writing web software in.

I'm also interested in Software Engineering as both a technical and "people" problem. This includes things under the umbrella of "agile" but I try not to call it that. I am of the opinion that proper Software Engineer is agile and shouldn't be distinguished as such.

Additionally I like beer and cooking and barbecue (I grew up in Texas).
