When my family got our first computer, I was 6 years old and couldn’t care less.
When my dad bought a copy of “The Complete Idiot’s Guide To Creating A Web Page” three years later, I was enthralled. Suddenly it clicked that the art I loved to make in the real world, I could make on a computer! Over the next two years I would teach myself HTML 4.0, and discover that it was fun to make computers do what I told them to (most of the time).
It started a lifelong obsession, first web, then 3D modelling, then graphic design and photo manipulation. At 16, I began working for a local web shop as a graphic designer.
When I was in college, sick of school and tired of feeling like a hack at work, I shifted my focus towards real programming. No more getting by on some advanced-level IT knowledge and enough PHP to fix some Wordpress theme bugs. I re-invigorated myself to learn the fundamentals of programming, and learn them well.
Since then I’ve spent my career learning all I can about how to help business grow and adapt through cutting-edge technology. My truest passion in life is solving problems bigger than myself using technology, and every day I get to wake up and serve clients to that end is a good day.

It’s not all 1s and 0s! I’m an avid singer/songwriter and have played piano most of my life, picking up some trombone, banjo, accordion, harmonica, and bass along the way. Not surprising, I’m a huge lover of synthesizers (music AND computers? Come on…) and release synthwave music as Video Home System with my brother Andrew.
I’m also a film-obsessive, dabbling in filmmaking since college. I’ve been a major part of 8 short film projects, written one short that’s never been produced (not yet), and have crewed on feature films, web series, and more. On the side, I’m a videographer for Double Springs Media, and a regular volunteer with Sidewalk Film Festival.
