about me

I am a software developer living on Long Island and currently working in New York City.  I started out as a Java developer and have since evolved into Scala and the Lightbend (formerly Typesafe) stack.  I am also failing miserably at attempting to become a functional programming wizard 😛 .

I am a huge space geek, own a couple telescopes and try to get outside and use them every so often.  I like to read books about physics and cosmology as well.  I also love to play chess.  Challenge me over at chess.com!

Sports, music (metal \,,/), weightlifting…you know the drill.

Really, I just like to keep moving forward, learning and doing whatever I can to continue to improve as a human being.  What else is there to do?

Thanks for reading.
