Insatiable Curiousity — Always Learning

I've been designing and building websites since high school (back when AngelFire was a thing), but never thought I'd end up doing it for a living — I was just having fun. Guess some things never change. :)

Continual learning and improvement is a necessity in any technology profession. "Finish learning" is a bucket list item that will remain unchecked, if I can help it. Like merit badges, I'm always looking to discover a new technology, design philosophy, or language.

If you don't see me writing code, it's probably because I have a guitar in my hands. My first love has always been the visual arts; music does not come so naturally to me. So, of course I'm obsessed. :)
