I would consider myself a born-again software developer. After completing my degree in computer science in 2002 I immediately went to work for a small independent company. I did a lot of really solid work for them that greatly enhanced their efficiency. Then I was given an opportunity to coach Division I golf at South Dakota State University (hence the profile image) and did that for 11 years. Things came full circle and my previous company was bought out and my former boss lured me back into the software development world. As of 2014, I'm back. During my time away, StackOverflow was born. It has been a great resource for me to learn the new technologies I've missed out on while I was gone.
