about



Hello!

I am an American living in the Netherlands for the past 4 years. I am a backend software developer enabling mobile app-based measurements of water and utility infrastructure. My educational background is in water resources, hydrology and remote sensing.

I am also a craft beer fan and an avid supporter of the local beer scene. I make an effort to try new beers and seek out new breweries whenever possible. I've been actively brewing ales of my own at home since 2012.
