Hobby Web Development
1996 - Present
Web development is my life. It all started way, way back before the turn of the century (hah, true though). I have always been into figuring out how things work and the internet has always been full of interesting things to take apart.
Fast forward some 20 years, and I still find myself dissecting the internet and creating awesome things. I use my spare time to mentor others and stay on the bleeding edge of web development.
I will program until I physically cannot! I love watching things come together right in front of my eyes.
Agencies and Freelance
2002 - 2012
I have worked through a LOT of agencies in the past for many clients.
From 2002-2003 I worked for Triangle Webnet (now TriTechDirect) in Raleigh, NC. This was my first job out of high school.
Other agencies and/or companies I have worked for: Paramount Parks, Caffeine Labs, Red Storm Entertainment, ISD, ATOMIC Entertainment, Turnkey/Matchstick Media, Leafguard, Cedar, JAMPC, CyberDen Systems, The Agency, Aquent, and more...
Corporate Web Experience
2013 - present
For three years (2013 - 2016), I was a Senior Web Presentation Architect at Ally Financial where I developed landing pages, applications, APIs, and a responsive framework.
I am currently a Senior Developer at TIAA.
I was a Front End Engineer at Bank of America during 2016 and early 2017.
Banks and insurance companies are the top of the food chain around here. I love my job and the people I work with.
Hobby Game Development
2006 - Present
Game development is another facet of my skillset that I believe lends a lot to my web development talents. I went to school for User Interface design, 3d Modeling/Animation, Simulation and Game Engine Design/Development. I use those skills to create immersive web apps with rich interactions that keep the end user engaged.
1983 - Present
I am a jack of many trades. I am a percussionist, a cook, a mechanic, and an inventor. I have been a game tester for multiple companies, a travelling casino game technician, and a record-destroying Carowinds game barker. I have played drums for/with many bands, friends, and thousands of complete strangers.
... but it all comes back to the web.
