I’m a technologist, engineer, and Christian based in Austin, Texas, USA.

In my free time, I am a musician (at The Well), an app developer (at Cryolite), and a robotics blogger (at ROS Guru). Kate is my wife and life partner.

Academic Research

I am currently studying towards my PhD at the University of Texas at Austin under Dr. Mitch Pryor and Dr. Andrea Thomaz.

My research looks at how robots can interact more seamlessly with humans learning to perform simple tasks on their own. I’m interested in all aspects of robotics, especially open source initiatives like the Robot Operating System.
