Hello! My name is Jeff.

I'm a full-stack software developer doing my best to make each day better.

While working at a Dairy Queen in a small northern Wisconsin town, there was a sign posted on a cooler door that simply stated:

Life is 10% what happens to you, and 90% how you respond to it.

It's been over twelve years since I regularly worked at that store, and that message still resonates with me on a daily basis - what we do and how we act determines who we are. Be empathetic, respectful, and pay it forward - everyone could use a little more kindness in life.

I am currently a full-time Store Manager at T-Mobile, a Software Developer at the Pennsylvania State University, and a ride-share driver for both Lyft and Uber. I'm blessed to have not just good health, but the energy, drive, and dedication, to keep pushing forward and to continually improve myself.

A great career consists of a solid foundation: I earned my A.A.S. in Computer Networking1 and my A.A.B. in General Business1 from Gogebic Community College in 2005, and my B.B.A. in Information Systems and Computer Science1 from the University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire in 2009. It is my long-term goal to complete graduate school by earning my MBA.

Last summer, I participated in the Happy Valley LaunchBox Summer Accelerator Program. Last fall, I became a Microsoft Certified Solutions Developer, and also earned my CompTIA A+, Network+, Security+, and Project+ certifications.

My eclectic portfolio is below. If you have any questions, comments, or would like to collaborate with me, please let me know.

Thank you for visiting my website,

-Jeff
