Howdy

Glad you decided to stop by. This site contains some examples of projects I've worked on over the years, a little bit about me, and a few of my relevant skills. Nearly all of the sites are custom made by me, front to back, but I've had some help from some friends on a few projects.

I do freelance work on the side, so take a look around and shoot me a message. I'm a developer, designer, manager, and leader. I'd love to help you with your project.

About Me

As you can tell, I'm not a big talker. I've pretty much always been that way, unless you get a beer or two in me. I've been making websites from the ground up for around 10 years now but didn't consider it a full-time job until about 5 years ago. That's when I really started getting interested in interactive design, web applications, and programming. I am still learning new techniques every day and creating some pretty amazing things.

Thanks for stopping by!
