I started tinkering with computers my junior year of high school. I majored in Computer Science at the University of Central Missouri, but never intended to use the degree, preferring to seek a career as an officer in the US Army. Two months after earning a slot to the US Army flight school, I was unexpectedly discharged from ROTC for medical reasons. I then decided to put the degree to use, first with a short stint at a small dial-up ISP, and eventually by starting RCS Computers. I came to Louisville in 2004 to attend Southern Seminary and began working as freelance web developer. The rest is history.
My primary responsibilities involve management of development projects, architecting technical solutions, writing code, and executive leadership. I excel at being able to understand and help clarify the business needs of an organization and in then bridging those needs with technical solutions. But I enjoy programming the most, especially architecture and testing.
I have a B.S. in Computer Science, an M.A. in Biblical Counseling. I am committed to, blessed, and sometimes greatly challenged by my wife and four children.
Conclusion: you decide ?
Tie between, “I love my wife,” and “Don’t let the car fool you; my treasure is in heaven.”
Die of boredom. OK, probably something ministry related, but even then, I’d be working. I am made to work.
Being ignorant of the world’s evils.
It's facilitated an opportunity for my family to develop a deep friendship with my business partner Nate's family. I also really enjoy software craftsmanship and leading Level 12 means I can set a high-bar for how we build software.
One of the things I like least is that I wear too many hats in the business. It’s hard to be proficient in any one area when you have lots of responsibilities competing for limited time.
“For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul?” (Mark 8:36 ESV)
Close second: “I’m right 97% of the time, who cares about the other 4%?”
That I would seek the Lord and trust him...even if that means I'm standing alone.
