Blaize has been interested in software development since childhood. While in grade school, Blaize was already programming and setting up LANs. Before graduating high school, Blaize had written his first commercial software. It was during high school when Blaize started working his first “real job” as a network administrator. Blaize since this time has been exposed to numerous technologies and has written applications ranging from drivers in Assembler to business applications in 4 GL’s for numerous platforms ranging from portable media players to high-end servers. But Blaize’s specialties include web development and mobile web development with technologies like ASP.NET, HTML5, JavaScript, CSS3, jQuery, jQuery Mobile, and PhoneGap as well as server side technologies for writing web services and websites such as .NET, WCF, Perl, and pHp.

From his early days in computing Blaize has loved teaching about technologies too. He spent time in high school training teachers on how to use technology. While in college, Blaize taught peer workshops on web technologies that were even attended by some of his professors. While pursuing his master’s degree, Blaize worked as part time programming instructor training students in current technologies as they prepared for their careers as developers. Even now, Blaize enjoys teaching through training videos and other venues that allow him to teach others how to use the technology.

Blaize loves to spend time with his wife. He also enjoys a wide range of activities including computer gaming, reading, writing, photography, cycling, guitar, language learning, and travel.
