I am a lifelong technologist. I specialize in modern front-end web development and a litany of programming practices and languages. I was trained in AGILE/SCRUM development on Ruby on Rails but spend most of my time working in JavaScript and PHP. I am an SEO expert and can prove ownership of websites that generate tens of thousands of monthly visitors. I have started three companies and obtained a United States patent, copyright, and trademark.

As a technologist and programmer, I have worked on a lengthy list of projects spanning nearly a decade of work. I love creating web applications, especially using modern front-end content management systems. In development, I aim to deliver intuitive applications that users and customers love to use.

Since my childhood, I have been a self-proclaimed "everything man". My interests are far reaching and extend well beyond technology. Beyond coding, networking, and hardware, I am an avid gardener, often growing a substantial supply of food for myself and my fiancé in our front yard. I have been skateboarding since I got my first board at seven years old. I love reading, especially Western philosophy. My primary areas of interest include nihilism, existentialism, post-modernism, transhumanism, and futurism. Further, I have written for various publications, often anarchist or indepdendent in nature, including The Black Sheep, North of Center, DeadBeats, and others.

As an entrepreneur, I taught myself to form businesses, and started my first company at age nineteen. For twelve hours a day, I sewed handmade couture urban fashions by hand in my apartment. Demand for my clothing took off and before I knew it, I could barely keep up with orders. I eventually closed the company to preserve the integrity of my work. I went on to found two more companies and served as a board member in a fourth venture.

In my spare time, I curate a blog about my favorite breed of dog: French bulldogs! At All About Frenchies my fiancé and I act as graphic designers, writers, and marketers. We estimate that our website will generate over a half-million visitors by the end of 2016. As hobbyist breeders, we seek to preserve and protect the French Bulldog breed from overbreeding and malfeasance by uninformed breeders by disseminating information about the nuances of the breed.
