Getting to a Single Digit Handicap:

While attending the University of Colorado in 2009, I started my own company selling websites to small, local businesses in Boulder, Colorado. It was started with a very simple goal in mind: provide companies an effective, aesthetic, and affordable web presence in order to fund my excessive golf and travel habits. 6 years later, my USGA handicap has dropped from a 16 to a 5.8, and I have a portfolio of work spanning graphic design, web development, data management, and software engineering across a wide variety of industries - automotive, finance, culinary, retail, and law, to name a few.

University of Colorado - Boulder

While studying economics and mathematics at the University of Colorado in Boulder, I incorporated myself and began selling small, affordable websites to local businesses around the area. At the time, I just wanted a better way to fund my golf and traveling habits than bussing tables at a local brewery.

Front Door Solutions - Denver/San Diego

Upon graduating from CU with a degree in Economics, I immediately signed a contract with a small advertising agency in Denver in order to assist them in developing a website to sell Chrysler corporate sponsored advertising to Chrysler dealerships around the country. After spending 7 months living in Denver managing and working working closely with my contracted development team, the site successfully launched. With the site running, I had the freedom to telecommute from anywhere, and I chose San Diego.

Search Optics - Detroit

While working in San Diego for FDS, we brought on Search Optics as an approved vendor on our website. As they were based in La Jolla, CA, I took the lead in building the relationship as well as onboarding their products onto our site. As the relationship developed and revenues were increasing for both parties, Search Optics ended up offering me a job back in their Detroit office as a designer.

Sprinkle Bit - San Diego

After 18 months of working at Search Optics, I burned out on the agency lifestyle. After a particularly cold winter, I decided that I would further my development abilities by taking an engineering position in San Diego (and made sure to get out of Michigan before the next snowfall).

Unfortunately, 8 months into my tenure at Sprinklebit there was a funding problem. While I believed (and still do) in the concept of the start-up, I simply was not in a financial position where I could work for free. In an effort to keep my bills paid, I left SprinkleBit on good terms to fend for myself in the freelance world. I learned a tremendous amount Sprinklebit and was given almost carte blanche freedom to work on components that I saw fit on an app with 10,000 regular users

Verve Mobile

After my initial freelance contract ran out, I was offered a full-time job at Verve as an operations developer. In my short time at Verve, I have been given a crash course in enterprise level software in Ruby on Rails. What started as a single form landing page in late March has evolved into a 24-table web application with a completely custom built UI serving over 50 daily power users. It combines our analytic data with any custom attributes our client would like to add using an OLAP Cube API.

January 2014 - August 2014


In my 6 years operating as a freelance designer, I've worked on printed goods, customized clothing, Wordpress Themes, Squarespace and Wix customizations, Shopify Themes, and Magento E-Commerce sites.


I've spent the last two years building and delivering enterprise-level adtech software at Verve Mobile focusing on TDD with Ruby on Rails. I've dabbled in GoLang, as well worked in a variety of the sprawling Javascript ecosystem (Polymer, React & Redux, a bit of Node and Angular). It has been a fascinating transition from design to development, and I feel working in both has improved my understanding of how to build software.


If there is one thing that sets me apart from my competition, it is my attention to the client and my ability to address their technological needs in a way that they understand. I truly believe that my ability to communicate, both with consulting engineers and requirement providers, is my biggest strength.


There's a very high chance that we will high-five at some point during the creative process.
