about

I'm not trying to reinvent the wheel...I'm succeeding at removing its spokes.

I got my start as a large format graphic designer in 1999 for a Harrisburg, PA based company. The creative atmosphere and like-minded people proved for an awesome working environment.

In 2003, I heard the call to enlist in the United States Air Force. To make a very long story short, I was stationed in Germany, deployed to Afghanistan & Iraq, and finally ended up in Georgia, where I honorably separated from active duty in late 2007.

Although all that travel did me well, I missed the mountains of PA, so I came home and went back to work for the same company.

Everything happens for a reason.

Like so many others, we got rocked by the 2009 economy bomb. As a result of imminent layoffs, I decided to further my education and enrolled in the Web Design & Interactive Media Bachelor's program at the Art Institute of York. Since then, I've learned a new appreciation for programming, a love for learning, and perhaps most importantly, a new sense of accomplishment.
