Raised in Kansas, with my formative years in Lawrence at the University of Kansas, I've spent a great deal of
my efforts diversifying my career options, as well as my personal hobbies. From deep roots in computer technology
to my polarizing efforts to reach out to the environment, I've found a variety of mediums inbetween to express myself.
Most notably in metallurgy, music, and aboriculture.
While being a jack-of-all-trades is my modus operandi, it only pushes my drive to succeed that much more because
I desire to take advantage of the virtues that lie in the pursuit of diversity. I'm currently seeking a stable career option
that will allow me to push forward, not only myself, but the company I share as well.
Trained as a Tree Climber with Russ Morgan, recognized arborist of Kansas City. I learned the facets of tree care,
and personal safety in the realm of rope climbing and rigging.

the tides of commerce can bring fortune.

My most recent application of metal fabrication was for this sign shop based in Lawrence, KS. I had taken upon the specific
role of Fabrictor to form aluminium signs for a variety of clients. Tools involved included welders, torches, power breaks,
and all of the hand tools. It required a knack for problem solving on the spot and knowing when to call upon the insight of
my team members.
I had started under Jon Zedaker, retired veteran welder, and learned the trade over the years. From industrial fabrication to
one of America's dirtiest jobs, cleaning bag houses, this was where I picked up my knack for plasma cutting and, although with
the advent of more affordable CNC technology, the finesse of a guided hand still has its' place.
Extropolating on what I had absorbed from the Captain(Jon), I was able to build up a small string of fabrication jobs, but
had lost momentum without a steady shop space.

My first few jobs outside of academic life were in the Technical Support field with Cox Communications as a High-Speed Internet Tech, and HR Block as a Tier 2
Tech Support Specialist. They were a clear extension of my knack for the field, but with my youth at stake, these jobs did not last long.
I had also spent a summer doing software testing for sprint on their intranet software. This job had exposed the arduous nature of programming, but, much like the previous jobs
in the field, suffered the same fate in the light of my youthful ambitions.
What kept my interests was the fact that I would never live without a personal computer. I would always be upgrading, reasearching, and enthusiastically watching as the world
of personal computing dove into our pockets in more ways then one. Over time I've become proficient with Office Tools, Photo editing software, Web Development
and hardware knowledge. My most recent developments were my Arborist website and this Resume website, which
The beacon of restitution for those trying to reclaim their sanity, the bar. The world can do much more work on your insides than
thought imaginable, so why not prove that you can keep up the pace by having another drink? I had been an on-call bartender for a handful of
Event Coordinators before becoming one myself.
After being in the events scene for long enough I developed a sense of belonging and picked up where Jennifer Robinson had left off at The Roasterie's
Bean Hangar. An inviting event space in downtown Kansas City that has hosted Mayor Sly James and Cheif's owner Clark Hunt among a collage of notable
