I am a passionate programmer and scrum master at a healthcare company, working primarily in C# and now Java. Current projects include evolving a supply chain management data hub into a scaling solution capable of handling tomorrow's capacity needs. I'm also a board member and organization secretary for Agile Denver, which promotes lean and agile delivery methods across the Colorado Front Range.

I'm dedicated to constant improvement. As a programmer, I experiment in other languages like Node.js, Scala and F#. And I'm pursuing an MBA in order to gain a deeper understanding of delivering software that's of value to businesses.

When I'm not working, I enjoy board games, hiking, soccer, and tabletop roleplaying games.

'Arbitrarily' is an adverb modifying an adjective, 'arbitrary' is an adjective.

comment Pronouncing the “N” as separate syllable at the end of words like “known” and “pattern”
I sometimes engage in this kind of hypercorrection for comic effect.

comment Word for application that is both sender and receiver
I disagree. Manager is too vague a term for a software component. It could refer to any component that does something with another component. See Clean Code for a chapter on Naming which talks about avoiding the word Manager <amazon.com/dp/0132350882/?tag=stackoverfl08-20>;.
