Born into an Air Force family, Eddie was homeschooled while his family moved from Washington State to California to Illinois and finally Hawai’i. He spent eight years in the latter but moved to the Washington, D.C. suburbs because he wanted “…to drive more than 30 minutes before running into the ocean.” Sure, Eddie lived in paradise, but he found his soulmate (Ashley) in the ‘burbs of D.C.
While living and going to school in Hawaii, Eddie worked at the university, invested time and talent in a couple of local start-ups and spent several years doing freelance work. Eddie started programming building back-end systems, but he discovered that he had a passion for front-end development. He has worked at Apple Retail, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), Maestro and ThreatConnect.
