I’ll stop talking about myself in the third person…

So, as I mentioned above, I currently acquire the benjamins through the application of design techniques and interactive development protocols to produce reasonably sophisticated online experiences for users of the World Wide Web. There was a time when I believed I could make a living skateboarding, or racing bicycles, or playing in bands. But none of that panned out. Probably for the best. Though I still dream of kicking Lance Armstrong’s cocky ass up one side of the high Alps and down the other.

New York City made me who I am today. I was there on 9/11. I will forever love that city and I will encourage every creative person I know to spend more time there than they are comfortable with – because once you get really uncomfortable, that’s when the transformation sets in.

While I was in New York, I ran a small studio and had the pleasure of working with Mark Pernice. I also played in a band called The Mercury Stars. When the band broke-up, we lost our domain name to an individual or group of individuals who chose to use the domain to peddle less than savory stuff. So I bought a new one. Take that peddlers of unsavory stuff. Tracks below.

I grew up in College Station, TX (30.6° N 96.3° W). It’s a fine town for Republicans, and Southern Baptists. My folks are those. And I love them. I also love cows, and horses, and the country. Because I grew up there.

I don’t read enough, and I don’t cook enough. Though I swear to my wife those things will change someday.
