🌄 I moved out of the Midwest to sunny Boulder, Colorado to play in the mountains!
⛏️ I switched teams at Microsoft and became a Software Engineer in Colorado

🏫 I took a few computer science courses at the University of Colorado in Boulder for fun
🐺 I rescued an Alaskan Malamute Siberian Husky mix named Koda (he's a heterochromia cutie!)
