About Me

I'm a Front-End Web Developer frequently found in the environs of Salt Lake City, Utah. I'm a huge Technology & Science Geek and my love for learning and finding out how things work borders on the obsessive. When not in front of a computer screen, I am usually found in the company of my wife Eliese, playing Lego with my son Kyler, or out walking my dogs Murphy and Gidget.

Shameless Self-Promotion

This is the part where I'm supposed to say that I'm “passionate” about Web Design & Development. I personally feel that the term passion gets thrown around a little too loosely when referring to ones employment.

What I will say is that I've been a professional front-end web developer and web designer for more than 5 years. I enjoy what I do and I pride myself on producing clean, readable, maintainable code, as well as attractive and usable web designs. I excel in balancing my "right-brained" creative half with my "left-brained" logical half * , and I'm obsessive about learning about new technologies and techniques.
