I grew up in a small town in central California. I'd always been interested in video games and design. I started obtaining the skills to illustrate, and animate while in high school, while leading my school's video production efforts. I taught myself what I needed to know to build video games while working a full-time gig doing tech support. I've built upon those learnings and now primarily focus on building rich web applications of all sorts. I'm still learning a ton and having a blast doing it.
Currently, some of my favorite tools are Node, Ruby, Vue, and Firebase.
When I'm not working on the next project, you'll probably find me making music, riding motorcycles, taking photos, or playing games (of both the board and video variety).
I generally dislike formality and try to bring compassion, humor, and empathy to the folks I work with. Your value to a team doesn't stop at your technical aptitude.
Be playful. In the end, we're all human and life is too short to take everything seriously.
