A PC Childhood

I grew up in California in the ’80s and ’90s. My dad was a very early adopter of home computing. I spent a lot of time playing with DOS, WordPerfect, SimCity, and all the 8-bit games I could get a hold of on 5.25” floppy disk. I still remember sitting on my dad’s lap and watching him fly over a pixelated landscape with triangular hills in Microsoft Flight Simulator. I was hooked.

The Web Enlightenment

Netscape introduced me to the web and I immediately set about learning how to make a website with Netscape Composer. I convinced my awesome seventh grade teacher (who managed to teach sixth-eighth grades simultaneously at our small school) that I should be allowed to turn in my reports as web pages instead of printed papers. I learned how to embed videos, make animated GIFs and create blinking text. Yeah, I was that kid.

Education, Buffet Style

The excitement for discovery has never died in me. I’ve experimented with all kinds of media: video, photography, music, art. It always comes back to computers and the Internet. I’ve taught myself Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, HTML, CSS, PHP, JavaScript, Actionscript, and Objective-C.

Higher-Education and Family Life

I studied Graphic Design at Brigham Young University-Idaho. While in school I met the girl of my dreams, fell in love and got married. We now have two beautiful children and couldn’t be happier.

Entrepreneuring

I’ve spent several years running a little startup called Appible which has experienced several modest successes. It’s time for a change, though, and I’m currently in the market for freelance and full-time employment opportunities.

If you’ve got a project or a position available please get in touch, I’d love to help.
