I’m currently a Postdoc Research Associate at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, working with next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies.. When I’m not working or studying, I like to attend my local .NET user’s group meetings (the Little Rock .Net User’s Group), take photos, write, go hiking/camping, and play music.
