A Little About Me

I'm a programmer, data guru, musician and gadget freak living in Las Vegas, NV. Originally from Oklahoma, I came to Las Vegas by way of Los Angeles, where I moved to pursue music, and eventually went back to school, attending California State University majoring in Computer Science. Originally wanting to be an engineering and math major, as soon as I hit the computer lab, that was it. I was hooked and made the switch.

I made my first website for a friend around 1994. About a year later, I started getting contracts to create sites professionally. I continued contracting until 1996, when I went to work for a startup real estate listing service, where I worked for over 10 years and became their Technical Director. I managed a team of talented developers, designers, sysadmins and project managers, and developed products that made millions.

I left the company in 2007 and started my own contracting business, and have enjoyed the return to hands-on development. I'm currently looking for long-term relationships with companies, and would enjoy a full-time position with the right company.

In my spare time I still play music, enjoy family time, write, and collect any gadgets I can get my hands on.
