I grew up in a small town in central California. I've been interested in design and video games for as long as I can remember so 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 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 Ruby, Node, 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, dismiss formality and value collectivism. I try to bring compassion, humor, and empathy to the folks I'm around. 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 it seriously.
