Jamie, born on the Eastern Shore of Virginia, grew up most of his life in Williamsburg after moving at age six. He made the most of his time in the "Colonial Capital," working part-time as a Character Interpreter for Colonial Williamsburg from the age of 12 on. Throughout middle and high school, he was active in many different groups and organizations, including the Boy Scouts (Jamie acheived the rank of Eagle Scout while in High School), his church, and his school's tennis team.
After graduating Lafayette High School in 2001, Jamie matriculated to the Univesity of Virginia's School of Engineering to study Computer Engineering. Virginia was a perfect fit for Jamie, just a two hour drive from Williamsburg (close enough to head home for a short weekend), but nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains and the rolling countryside. Jamie enjoyed his time in college, both making lifelong friends and continuing to shape who he is. It was his time in Charlottesville that cemented his love of college sports (of course specifically Virginia), his enjoyment of skiing and golf, and his interest in technology.
After graduating from Virginia in 2005, Jamie moved to Alexandria, where he worked on government contracts for the Department of Defense. In December of 2005, he started working for SAIC, providing web engineering and technical architecture support for various government projects. He uses his specality in web programming, emerging technologies and open source solutions to help modernize existing operations and start-up small and medium sized projects. In his spare time, Jamie is a partner in Capital Weather LLC, a small internet company who provides weather information, logistics, and strategy to the Washington Post's weather operation. He also enjoys golfing, watching sports on tv, and exploring all that Washington DC has to offer with his friends.
