Hi, I'm Devon.

I'm a solutions architect interested in application integration, data engineering, event-driven architecture, and software design. I live in Lorain, Ohio with my wife Chrissie and our dog Banjo. We're the proud parents of Nick and Leilani.

I grew up in Cincinnati where I had the incredible good luck to attend the School for Creative and Performing Arts (SCPA). I studied Music Education at Ohio State and still love to write and arrange music when I get time, although my few pro credits are long behind me.

Random Bits

  • I love to learn. I always have a book in my hands or a podcast in my earbuds.
  • When I was a kid, my dream jobs were typist, animator, astronaut, ILM special effects artist, and film music composer. If my 7-year-old self could see me now, spending 90% of my day typing, he would be ecstatic.
  • My favorite non-fiction book is A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson.
  • My name is pronounced DEH-vin bee-AIR.
