About Me

I currently live in Northern Virginia. I work for a company that supports the US Department of Defense by providing web-based tracking of RFID tagged shipping containers from shipping centers in the US to bases around the world. Somewhat like how FedEx tracks their packages.

I enjoy photography, volleyball, and hiking. You can often find my wife and I cycling the W&OD trail. I’m always reading. My last name is pronounced "how".


My Twitter account is mostly stuff about software development.

My LinkedIn profile has my professional history.

My GitHub repository has some projects.


My Icebreaker Questions page continues to get several hundred unique visitors a day.
