Here is a quick intro - all about me.
I was raised in rural eastern Utah (Roosevelt and Ballard). My parents were divorced when I was in 6th grade. I lived in Salt Lake City and went to Jr. High there (8th & 9th grade). I moved back to Roosevelt for High School.
Growing up, I was very much into sports. My dad coached football, wrestling, and baseball. My older brother and I often got to with him and the team on long bus trips.
In high school, I played football 🏈, basketball 🏀, and baseball ⚾️. I ended my senior year by breaking my arm while pitching in the state tournament, Dave Dravecky style. 😬💔
There, I met my beautiful wife Rachel. I continued to work and got to school. I later moved my career to 3M Health Information Systems and my schooling to Weber State University where I got my degree in Computer Information Systems. Also, thanks to 3M for their 100% tuition reimbursement program! 💯
I've been fortunate to work for some great companies as you can see from my LinkedIn profile.
I currently live in northern Utah with my wife 👧🏻 and 5 kids 🙎🏼♀️🙍🏼♂️🙍🏻♂️🙍🏼♂️🙍🏻♂️ and our dog 🐶. Now my sport of choice is pickleball!
I've been blogging for many years. More than anything, I blog for myself. I can't tell you how often I have gone back to my own blog to remember how I did something in the past. It is also fun to have co-workers tell me they found an answer to a question on my blog. They say, "I should have just come asked you." My response is, "I would have just sent you to my blog."
I hope you find something useful for your work or home life here. Feel free to leave a comment or reach out to me on Twitter and say hello.
