I'm a native Hoosier, but currently hang my hat in
Georgia Oregon. It all started when I headed to SCAD to earn a B.F.A. in Illustration. Prior to that I spent two years at R.I.T. However, tuition increases and the campus climate convinced me to transfer down South.
It was quite a culture shock going from the tundra of Upstate New York to the deep South. But the shock wore off, and I ended up living in the Peach State for nearly 25 years.
I built my first website in 1998 using Adobe PageMill. A few years later I embraced my inner geek, ditched the “web design” software, and learned to love writing code.
These days I primarily make my living doing Drupal theming and development, with a little interaction and UX design thrown into the mix. I've also racked up quite a few hours in project/team management, and am still more than willing to jump on any opportunity that involves drawing stuff.
In my current role at Mediacurrent I have the pleasure of working with some amazingly tallented, smart, and hilarious folks, where I focus on buliding front end systems, primarily for Drupal (and mostly in Drupal 8, these days).
I've gotten to work on complex builds for major brands in the entertainment, finance, and non-profit sectors that I never dreamed I would get to work on.
