I grew up in a suburb in MD called Columbia, which is just outside Baltimore in Howard County. I have a younger sister who is very close in age and always kept me in check. I fell in love with computers and technology at a very young age. I loved playing video games and messing around with my dad's PC trying to break things for the fun of it. My main group of friends and I met when we were about 7 years old and mostly just stayed indoors. We became so close we still think of each other as brothers to this day. My other interests like Soccer were more physically active and definitely helped me become a more well-rounded person. When I went to college in Virginia I took my interest in computers to another level of seriousness. I decided I wanted to work professionally in the field. The rest was history. I now live in New York with my wife Rachel and two young boys Everett and Nathan. They mean the world to me.
