About Me:

I’m a born again follower of Jesus Christ with a beautiful wife and a crazy cat. I was born and grew up in Pennsylvania, where I gained an interest in computer technology and the Internet.

My teen years consisted of Boy Scouts, where I achieved the rank of Eagle Scout. As well as concert band, choir, and a few parts in school musicals. Later, I attended college graduating with a Bachelor’s of Science. That whole time never dropping my hobby of building websites for various reasons.

I’ve had everything from a GeoCities site to a Xanga blog, and MySpace. If it was on the Internet I was a part of it or so it seemed. I currently own several websites and manage several more. Most recently, I changed this site from a site to helping people be better bloggers, into this over arching branding page.


My professional strengths have stemmed from my desire to learn without ceasing; always after to better myself, mixed with my love for technology.

These include:

HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Bash, Python, PHP, and Linux CLI.

Why does your website look so plain?

My goal to make the most light weight website possible. As you can see from examples of sites I manage this is not the route taken for clients and friends. However, since many websites now cause us to load more bytes than was needed to program the Apollo missions I am out to show that a good functional website does not have to be several megabytes in size.
