Who am I?

I love what I do

I started making websites back when Netscape was the best browser you could find, and a cell phone with internet on it was over a decade away. I taught myself to program growing up, and by the time I was 16, I left high school to go to college.

After six months, I was recruited to an interactive agency, and have been working at some amazing studios all around the country since.

Currently, my specialty is UX Design & Front-End Development.

Over the last many years, I have been studying Engineering, Physics & Aeronautics, among many other important subjects. I like to build gizmos, laser cut art, 3D print and make art.

I am a single-father of an amazing 8 year old boy, who happened to be born on my birthday.

I produce electronic music, and have performed all over the country, including many amazing festivals like Burning Man, Earthdance & more.
