Hey You!

Glad you found my website! If you're looking to hire me, click here to get to the good stuff. Otherwise, the icons above should give you a good idea of getting to the part of the site that is of interest to you. For many of you who know me, I don't really have an online presence (and plan on keeping it that way) BUT, I figured I would provide a way for those interested in what I am doing, or have done, a way to view it in one place. This site will constantly be evolving, and constructive criticism is always welcome. Definitely reach out if any links are broken, or you just can't get to the information you were looking for.

So...... why did this take so long? I mean, it's not like I create and maintain websites for a living. Ha, whatever, it's here now, and it is going to continue to get better. Just wanted to let the world that I have done a lot of cool things, and here is the proof. Everyone has a story . . . and this is mine.

I'm a nerd/geek/[insert awesome thing to be classified as]. I'm clever, quick witted, and smarter than the average bear. I have an odd sense of humor, and hopefully you are smart enough to get it throughout the site. If not, you will probably just think I am weird, and I'm OK with that!

Everything on this site was created in some way, shape or form, by me. Logos, Websites, Mixes, Business Cards, Wedding Invitations, and even the Icons. The site itself, not so much. I found this template, and ran with it. I am by no means a UX/UI guy, but I can take a template or idea and make magic happen. Build vs. Buy - My time was worth more than the template cost :-p I still have some work to do as far as mobile goes, but you should be able to get to what you need regardless.

Quick links for those still confused on where to go:
