    I grew up in the Kansas City metro before leaving to attend Northwest Missouri State University in Maryville. I then attended graduate school at the University of Wisconsin. When not busying myself with digital and tech related matters, I enjoy live music, traveling abroad, and all types of ethnic cuisine. I am also a huge gamer and own 9 different game consoles spanning the last 2 decades; from the original Nintendo NES up through the current generation PS4 and Xbox One X.
