Let me introduce myself
I spent the beginning of my web career working with a variety of clients, doing everything from initial research, to design and then finally the development and implementation as well. I came to the realization that it would be best for me and my clients if I focus on what I truly love, web development. So now I focus on front-end web development only.
My experience in both full-scale web projects and web design has given me unique insight and experience when it comes to working with designers, agencies, and companies alike. I understand the entire process and thus in addition to never holding anyone up, I can wear many different hats.
How I Got Here
I’m an entrepreneur and startup guy and love working with awesome people on their ideas, businesses, and organizations.
As a kid I loved to build intricate things. I wasn’t content to simply play soldiers or astronauts with my brothers. I would spend hours building and creating shields, swords, and full-blown cardboard cockpits with buttons, switches, and levers. This is what probably dragged me into the startup world.
Long story short, I’m a startup guy with too many ideas, and was tired of not being able to implement them. It seems there are far more business types with ideas than designers/developers, so I set out to learn the technical side of things. That has turned into a bit of an obsession, as I’m loving building and creating things on the web, and that is how fringe came into being.
On a More Personal Note
I went to Texas A&M University, racked up some student loans to pay for growing up, and completed two degrees (B.S. and M.S.) in Economics, Business, and Entrepreneurship.
I have a beautiful wife, who is working on her Ph.D. in Latin American history, and two cats that, I’m embarrassed to say, we treat too much like children.
