About Me

Where to start? I am 30 years old and currently living just outside of Kansas City, MO. I have an amazing wife(who is very supportive of this addiction I like to call the internet) and 2 children.

I enjoy not writing bios, music, reading, design, development, RSS!, fishing, and spending every second I can with my family. I've always had a love for computers, but wasn't really drawn into web design until the late 90s.I got my start like many musicians, by building a website for my band at the time Six Percent. I got my start like many musicians, by building a website for my band at the time Six Percent. Music has been a major part of my life over the last 10 years. Six Percent, my first step into music was a big part of my life. I spent the next 6 years touring around the midwest with some of my favorite bands at the time the Urge & the 2 Skinnee J's. Since then I've played guitar for a few other bands, most recently The Elizabeth Dane and currently a second run with Indira.

My career officially started back in 2000 working with flash and e-commerce development at a small startup with 4 friends of mine. After stumbling across the CSS Zen Garden in 2005 I completely changed my focus, and began the journey towards building Standards based websites using CSS/XHTML, and I've never looked back.

I say "offcially started", because my freelance career didn't kick off until May 1st 2005, when I participated in the CSS Reboot. I launched the 3rd version of my main portfolio website, FortyEightDesigns.com. Over the next year my site was flooded with traffic / freelance requests I've been actively freelancing ever since.
