Digital identity is my passion. I always enjoyed science, math, and technical things as a kid, but I didn't get into software engineering until I was in college. After seeing how much I enjoyed it, I decided to major in computer science and earned an undergraduate degree from PSU. After getting my bachelors degree, I went to work for Thomson Grass Valley. There, I worked as a systems engineer and a lead developer. I left Grass Valley in 2008 to work for Fiserv as a software engineer specializing in federation and digital identity management. At the end of 2010, after earning my MBA from George Fox University, I relocated to Sweden and joined Ping Identity as a senior technical architect reporting to the CTO.
In addition to being an engineer and entrepreneur, I'm also a husband and father. My wife, Sara, has a great blog and can teach you all about SOA and cloud computing. We have two children, Caleb and Joshua.
