About Me

Hey There! My name is Chase. I love God, my family, and technology (computers and gadgets mostly).

I've spent the past 10 years crafting my ability as a software developer; learning through books, blogs, and of course StackOverflow.

I started out building an HTML website for a church, and got hooked. It bothered me that every time they needed to updated it, they had to ask me to do it for them. I decided at that point that if I could only figure out how to write to, and read from a text file, that I could make it so that they could update their own website. This was my first iteration of a "CMS", and I did it just by searching around the web till I figured it out.

After a couple of years writing classic asp, I made the jump to asp.net and my journey of learning has never stopped. I'm passionate about programming, a quick learner, and thrive when learning new technologies. Programming gets me excited, and I enjoy going the extra mile on projects.
