Can you tell us a little about yourself (hobbies, education, etc.)?
Professionally, I’m a software engineer who focuses on testing, automation, and CI/CD. My specialty is building test automation frameworks. I’ve worked at major software companies around Raleigh, NC, I run a software blog at automationpanda.com, and I also do independent consulting.
I’m originally from Baltimore, Maryland, USA. I first got into software in 9th grade, when I learned how to program math formulas into my TI-83 Plus graphing calculator. Coding was addictive! I went on to earn a combined BS/MS in Computer Science at Rochester Institute of Technology in 2010, and I have worked in the software industry ever since.
I’m a pretty busy guy, but I enjoy cooking, craft beer, and playing Nintendo games. Right now, I’m deep into The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. I’m very active in my local church: I once served as an usher, and I’m currently teaching a class in systematic theology. My wife and I like to travel, too.
