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?
I grew up in Northern California. After finishing design school, I worked in advertising in San Francisco for a few years, mostly television commercials. It wasn't what I wanted to do with the rest of my life, but it taught me a number of important things. Most importantly, it helped me learn how agencies run and what drives consumers to purchase products.
In 2007, the company I was working for started sendxsing employees to web development classes to better understand how it would effect our industry in the coming years. To say I loved the classes is an understatement; it completely changed my life. I've been writing code every day since.
The web allows me to combine my background in design with the logic of development.
