About Me

Hi I'm Parker. I work at Microsoft, and do some development for personal projects when I have the time. I currently reside in Seattle, WA with my 30lb cat, Mowgli (no, that's not a typo, he's bigger than a small dog). I enjoy backpacking, camping, skiing, and the outdoors in general - as well as tinkering with electronics.

I graduated from Duke University with degrees in Electrical & Computer Engineering, and Computer Science in 2013. Afterwards, I moved out west from my hometown of Chagrin Falls, a small town just outside of Cleveland, OH. I've been at Microsoft since then working as a Program Manager for Bing.


These are some of the things I've made, project pages with more detail will be available soon.
