About Me

I am a Web Developer/Visual Designer currently living in Crosby, Texas. I have over 25 years of real-world experience world of design and development. I am self-taught in all design, graphics, and code. The knowledge I gained is from actual real-world experiences that can not be gained by attending a university, college, or any type of school.

I specialize in the planning, design, and coding stages of responsive websites, user interfaces (UI), streamlining of the user experience (UX). I've designed thousands of ads during my history for use in online marketing.

I believe that the importance of how a website, application, or ad appears, must be balanced with how well it performs loading on devices. I believe in lean code, web standards, accessibility, usability, and semantic code. For more information on the skills I posesses visit the Knowledge page.

I was born in New York City, raised there; and later moved to Virginia Beach, Virginia in 1993. Crosby, Texas has been my home since 2007. I am no longer fond of cities like I was back when I was hanging out in Times Square in New York City. I like the quiet now, the slow life, and the relaxation I can enjoy working from home permanently since 2017, all things tech, geek, Linux, woodworking and spending time with with my wife in Crosby, Texas.
