My path to where I'm at was somewhat unorthodox for the industry I ended up in. Which, by virtue of being unique is really not all that different at all. We all have a story.
I never thought I'd be a software engineer. No did I think I'd ever be blogging. But I'm looking forward to sharing what I have learned and build an online business at the same time.
My wife, Lexi, and I met playing basketball. Most of our dates started in the gym with a competitive game of 1-on-1, where the wager was the winner would buy dinner. It was the only way I could get her to go out with me consistently, as she had a flock of guys chasing her.
Long story short, we later married and continued to play ball together. I helped her train for her senior year of collegiate basketball, supported her as she had a standout season, and celebrated as she was drafted into the WNBA.
After a short stint, we realized that the league was just not a great fit for us; not a place we wanted to spend much time. Interestingly, they seemed to have reciprocal feelings as we didn't mesh well with their culture. So she decided to hang up the shoes and we started a family.
We now have 2 young kids and they are bright lights in our lives. So much personality, curiosity, and innocence. We thank God frequently that we decided to step away from the professional scene and start this phase of our life.
There's a lot more to us, and there's far more things we are interested in than can be fit in this short description. But we're open books. Whatever questions you have, ask away!
