Hi, I'm Devon.

I'm a software developer and aspiring data scientist. I work for T-Mobile as an EAI development team lead. I'm currently working on my Bachelor of Science in Data Management/Data Analytics at WGU.

I grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio 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 movie is The Princess Bride. I saw it in the theater when it first came out. I don't think I've ever been part of a more surprised and insantaneous shout of laughter from an audience than when Peter Cook as the "Impressive Clergyman" opened his mouth and said, "Mawwiage". It's a perfect movie.
  • My favorite non-fiction book is A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson.
  • My name is pronounced DEH-vin bee-AIR.
