About.

The web is where I make my living both night and day. It's what gets me up in the morning. I'm fascinated by the human experience of the web. Why do people click on certain parts of a page and not others? What drives people to trust a site and share their information? How can relationships be built online?

Agencies.

Agencies are incredibly busy these days. I know my business is. There are great times in the life of an agency where you don't want to say no to work, but you also can't justify bringing on a full-time employee just yet.

I know first hand just how busy agencies can be. Often times in the life of an agency, work that can’t be turned down puts your team over capacity. A full-time employee is costly and the extra work is temporary. That’s where I can help.

Entrepreneurs.

Entrepreneurs are my favorite people in the world to work with. I appreciate what you're doing. I understand the ups and downs of running a business. I understand refining ideas late into the night when everyone else has gone to bed.

I'm a business owner myself, and my business is to help your business grow. It's the greatest partnership in the world.

How I got here.

I grew up in Northern California. After finishing up college with a degree in film, I worked in advertising in San Francisco for a few years, mostly TV commercials. It wasn't what I wanted to do with the rest of my life, but it taught me a number of important things. Mainly, how agencies run and what drives consumers to purchase products.

In 2007, the company I was working for started sending employees to web development classes to better understand how it would effect our industry in the coming years. TV was our Grandparents technology, the web was ours. To say I loved the classes is an understatement; it completely changed my life. I've been writing code everyday since.

I made a career switch and haven't looked back. The web allows me to combine my background in design with the logic of development.

What makes me tick.

I'm an organizer; I like whiteboards and charts. I like gathering people; I started the Denver Code Club and now help organize the annual Develop Denver conference.

I'm a fairly heavy book reader. I can out nerd you for sure. I can talk for hours about baseball, music or photography. There's nothing more satisfying than crossing items off a todo list. I've always lived in cities, and would love to try out living in the mountains some day.

More than anything, I enjoy working to understand what helps people make decisions. How can I help make the users experience more seamless? How can I help build communities on our ever evolving internet? That's why I'm here.
