About

I'm Braden - currently finishing the Computer Science program at Brigham Young University. I've been in software development for three years and have loved every minute of it. This is where I host my blog and personal projects.

Faith

I am an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I love my Savior Jesus Christ and strive each day to be a little more like Him. I know that I have a Father in Heaven that loves me unconditionally and wants me and my family to be happy now and eternally. One of the most powerful ways that I have been able to draw closer to Christ is through reading and following the principles taught in the Holy Bible and The Book of Mormon.

Family

I am happily married to my incredible wife Michelle. She is kind, loving and has an affinity for curly hair and film photography. Together, we are parents to a high-energy, brown-eyed little boy named William who loves lions with all his heart. We are not perfect parents, but we strive for positive, purposeful parenting, a mostly whole-foods, plant-based diet and a simple, organized home.

Work

I'm currently a full-time student at Brigham Young University and a part-time software engineer at Qualtrics. In May 2020 my family and I will move to Seattle where I will be taking a job as a software engineer with Microsoft.
