I’ve been screaming obscenities since coming into this world on June 3, 1985. Born in Tulsa, Oklahoma then raised in Iowa Park, Texas (elementary school) and Lawton, Oklahoma (junior high/high school) now residing in Wichita Falls, Texas. I got married on December 7, 2007 to Melissa. I have spawned two kids; a son Chase David born March of 2003 and a daughter Rachael Leigh born in 2005 (pictured left).
I’m not sure what others call me, but I call myself a web designer and developer. I’ve been in web design since 2001/2002 and developing (mostly php at the time) since 2004. I was a freelance designer for over two years doing a wide range of client work. I’ve worked with WordPress exclusively during that time. August 2008 began a new phase for me as I started working for DigiMedia.com here in Wichita Falls as a web designer and rails developer. After just over a year at DigiMedia I was given a great opportunity and left the company to go work for Crane|West Advertising Agency. I started October 1, 2009 and look forward to the future of the company.
I’ve been obsessed with Apple since getting my first Mac in February 2008. Since then have bought several and don’t plan to stop. My home setup includes a 24″ Apple iMac (early 2008) with a 22″ Dell LCD for dual and a 15″ Apple Macbook Pro (late 2008). I spend more than enough time in my home office so a great setup is a must. At work I use my MacBook Pro which allows for a nice convenience. You can see pictures here.
Did you see that? WTF!
Between design work I’m all about gaming. This has held true for as long as I can remember. I grew up a Nintendo Fanboy, that is until the Dreamcast came out which is still a great system. Then something amazing happened in my life that I will forever remember. Picking up an original Xbox and getting Xbox Live (back in the early days of Live before it become flooded). No more would I have to deal with my family and friends who couldn’t game if their life depended on it. This also marked me realizing that I wasn’t as badass of a gamer as I had thought. I could get my ass kicked by people from all over the world and this excited me. Here we are several years later and I’m on the Xbox 360 and still on Xbox Live. You can find me most of the time on Halo 3 and every so often on RS Vegas 2 or Burnout Paradise. Gamertag is twofivethreetwo so hit me up with a friends request. I also own a Wii which I spend a good amount of time on with my kids. There is nothing like sitting down for some Mario Kart or Smash Bros. Brawl.
