Grew up in Chardon, Ohio before moving to Boca Raton, Florida. My previous career was in restaurant management and I managed the dining room in the Polo Club of Boca Raton (home to sports stars such as Chris Everett and Steffi Graf). I went on to open my own restaurant in Charlottesville, Virginia. After a few years I became interested in computers and websites as the web was just coming into it's own. In '98 I started got my A+ & MCSE and started building and networking computers. (back when you had to set IRQs!) I moved into supporting web hosting for Verio. In 2003 I started doing SEO and have been doing that ever since. I currently work for 360i.com as an SEO Manager.
