Originally from Oklahoma City but have lived in the UK, Southern Africa, and am currently in Costa Rica. My family and I enjoy traveling and experiencing other cultures. The world and its people are amazing!
My background since 2002 is in media design with experience in videography, graphic design, and web design. Then I transitioned to a visual developer building custom designs using Webflow. Now I work at Webflow as a QA Analyst.
When I'm not building websites, I'm talking about it here, on Youtube, on Twitter, and on the Webflow forum.
Oh and you might have noticed that I'm a Macintosh fan. Been a user since 1993. My career in creative media wouldn't have been possible without Macs.
Feel free to browse around my virtual computer. You never know what you might find.
