Stewart hails from the San Francisco Bay Area. Following in the footsteps of his father and uncle, he attended Humboldt State University. In 2013, he graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Biology with an emphasis in Marine Biology. Following college, he spent four years as a senior web developer for West County in Santa Rosa, California, and nearly two more years working as a senior programmer for Loma Linda University in Southern California.
When he and his wife, Breanna, decided it was time to move back up the coast, they set their sights on Portland. When he first came across the software engineer opening at Sitka, he “couldn’t help but apply.” It combined both his passions: biology and software development. Something he had nearly given up as a possibility.
When not focused on work, Stewart enjoys cooking with his wife, working on side projects, playing Rocket League, and spending as much time camping as his (and his wife’s) schedule allows.
