I was born in Auckland, New Zealand. At the age of 5, my parents and I moved from New Zealand to Stillwater, OK, USA. After graduating high school, I attended Oklahoma State University for a semester before deciding that I would take a gap year. That gap year turned into three years. Finally, in 2011, I decided I had had enough of working retail and other odd jobs. What I wanted to do was write software. So I re-enrolled at Oklahoma State and finished an entire year. I spent the summer after that year in San Diego for an iOS developer internship. As the summer drew to a close, I was offered a full-time position.
In February 2018, I adopted my sweet boy Sterling and moved into my travel trailer full time. We have been traveling the states ever since (aside from hunkering down during the worst of the pandemic).
