Bio

I've been building websites and doing graphic design for over 10 years. It all began when I was a junior in high school and I built my first website for a group of friends to broadcast our skateboarding videos. It was pretty ugly honestly, but I was hooked. I was filled with curiosity and a desire to learn more.

I graduated from the Eller School of Business at the University of Arizona, and I started my career focusing on the creative and strategic side of things. I joined a national advertising firm and became the youngest media director in company history. However, I always had an itch to build something. I wanted to be in tech and the growing startup culture.

After spending the weekends building websites for friends or family for extra rent money, I got the opportunity to join an amazing startup. The company was building retail automation software and growing rapidly. I spent the next few years learning all that I could from some of the smartest people I've ever met.

Today, if I'm not committing code or reviewing pull requests, I'm probably enjoying the sun with my dog. I don't have a lot to complain about.

If you want to chat about scaling web applications or what really happened to Carole Baskin's husband don't hesitate to reach out.

The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity.
