Started making websites when they used to call us “Webmaster” and kept up that title. Expert coding email newsletters, creating custom WordPress plugins, setting up email accounts and implementing SEO best practices. When I’m not thinking about, or creating a better internet I can be found: bumbling my way through fatherhood; listening to podcasts; faking it at the gym; getting tattoos; re-watching “Parks and Rec.” or occasionally, trying my hand at open mic standup comedy!
