At the age of ten, I took apart phones, computers, radios, and anything unlucky enough to have accessible screws. I'd use parts of those devices to build accidental creations. For example, a sneaker that doubled as a phone, with a built in caller-id, dubbed the ‘Juju Phone’. I carried it around with me for quite some time, everywhere I went. This silly experiment set the tone for the future.
I've always had a passion for creating things. I developed my very first website at the age of twelve. Fortunately, for you and I, you won't find it anywhere on my portfolio. Continuous practice and experimentation leads to a better understanding of what may work, what absolutely works, and the many ways a product can be improved.
My first ultra-successful media product was developed in 2007. It was a MySpace resource website, and it garnered more than 60 million unique visits during its lifetime. From then on, I pursued interesting idea that came to mind. I've developed websites targeting a diverse assortment of audiences – from video game and technology, enthusiast, to lovers of free events, star gazers, and those who want to make a difference in the world through volunteering.
My work has appeared on television, radio, the web, newscasts, magazines, and even video games. Through freelancing, I've worked face-to-face and remotely with over 300 individual small businesses and large corporations such as Photobucket, Getty Oil, and Capcom. At the end of the day you want something that works well, looks great, and scales well. You ultimately want a product that grows your business, and you want to work with a company whose expertise aligns with your needs.
My favorite things in life include: Going to live events, dining out, being productive, forming new relationships, fitness, and photography. Also, I've never been beaten in a foot-race. Challenge. I have a supportive family, a wonderful significant other, and good friends who are present.
In the short term, I'd like to build a network of stimulating web sites. These sites will reach millions around the world, and will delight, inspire, and inform. Other plans include starting a non-profit for the homeless, learning more computer languages, spoken languages, and sign language. I look forward to future partnerships, opportunities, connections. Let’s get started.
My next major project is the biggest one I've worked on. It's a complete re-make of Spacedex. The site has been a success, and this upgrade aims to make it bigger, better, and faster. The new and much improved website will launch in mid-2015.
