Though not a superhero adopted at a young age by my parents, as I had believed for so many years, I seem to have survived the emotional blow that came with the realization of my normality and moved on. However, I occasionally jump up and down to ensure that I haven't gained the power of flight.
I was born and raised in Baltimore City and am a product of Baltimore City Public Schools. I spent four years in college, studying computer science and art, but dropped out to take a job with a local newspaper. From there, I worked my way through quite a few IT jobs, including time spent at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, Northrop Grumman, UPS, and Johns Hopkins University. I am now back at Northrop Grumman, where I work as a manager, systems engineer, and cybersecurity expert.
In 2016, I moved from Baltimore to Sykesville, Maryland, where I live with my wife and daughter. We also have a dog, two cats, and an undying love of baseball.
