Web Developer - Graphic Designer - UX Designer
My love for computers started in the 3rd grade. After programming an infinite loop on the Apple IIGS in the LOGO language within the Turtle program, I won a scholarship to computer camp. In 2000, I started Globalsoho.com, an Ebay business. This got me interested in better websites to support my business. In 2003, I started my own freelance web design company, Notion Potion.
I have been building professional websites since 2000. I have corporate, advertising and startup experience. Working at Alcoa there was a structured corporate process. We met 100% corporate compliance after a fiscal audit. At BarkleyREI I learned about the fast pace of a design house. We had quick turnaround of large and beautiful websites. I learned a lot about standards-compliant web design. Working at USA Today, our division had just been purchased by the parent company, Gannett. The company had just undergone an acquisition and I was working with a new development team. We built a great team in the following three years. I learned about a wide array of frontend and backend development. I am currently employed by Ciber Inc., a managed IT digital marketing company. It's managed IT serving corporate clients which include Delmonte, Big Heart Pet, Bayer, and Ascensia Diabetes.
I live in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with my wife and daughters. In addition to web design, I create upcycled art out of pinball machine parts, wire, and just about anything recycled. I sell on my website and through my Etsy-based business, Tiltcycle. I am also a pinball enthusiast and participate in a pinball league and compete in tournaments.
