About Me



I am a passionate website guru. I have been fascinated by the internet since 1995 when I saw my first website in a computer lab at college. It was ESPN. The first website I did was handwritten html for my college radio station. We streamed our college radio station’s broadcast online in 1996.

My hobby eventually turned into a career. I have been building websites professionally since 1998. I have worked primarily in marketing departments in charge of websites, email campaigns, social media, etc.

I have lived in Chicago and the suburbs my whole life outside of my time in Milwaukee for college. Since I have two young girls, spare time is very spare. But I do enjoy to spend that time painting and trying new recipes.
