All about me, professionally.

Skills/Competencies

I started designing websites and building applications (for real) around 2002. Learning to code spawned from the desire to bring my designs to life, but programming quickly became a passion. My current role pulls me away from code a bit, but adds a new kind of challenge. I'm very fortunate to love all aspects of what I do.
