Introduction

I love to share happiness with others.
I love to help everyone I can in any way I can.


I am passionate about vitality in body, mind & spirit. Kindness and compassion are things we can't share enough of. I practice & advocate a
Plant Strong lifestyle, but never push my ways on anyone. I don't think it's right to force ideas! Instead I encourage personal diligence. It is a strong means of destroying fear. I love the line from Dune, "I must not fear. Fear is the mind killer. Fear is the little death." I think it's very good to humbly and honestly reflect upon oneself and thereby grow from all of our experiences. I believe that life is a gift (and so precious), and we should enjoy it by all means. Everything holds a lesson, whether we take it as good or bad: we can learn so much and thus grow daily. Have no regrets, live with hope and faith. Be mindful of your past, but do not dwell on the consequences of your choices. Choose to "be excellent to each other." Smile & laugh, a lot.

This is how I try to live and be my best. None of us are perfect, but we can seek perfection or simply seek peace in our lives. No matter what,
know thyself. Be who you are; 'unlabel' that which holds you from being whom your spirit commands you to be. Always get back up and keep your chin up. You can and will make a difference in the world.

We are all leaders. Every one of us! Encourage everyone to grow and be the leader they have inside: have confidence; educate themselves. Be a light of example.

I've always had a thing for technology. I guess it's a way of expressing my mind. This mind which never stops thinking, concepting, optimizing, growing.

I like puzzles and anything that expands my intellect and makes me think. If I watch television, 99% of the time it is educational in some sense. I like to think deeply; I'm an intellectual with a passion for expansion.

I grew up disassembling everything to learn how it worked. I used to do stupid things and shock myself with my electric trains. I just had to hack my NES and thought the Game Genie was just too cool as I'd write my own soft-mods. I've modded this and that and enjoy the challenge even if I don't know what it is yet.

My first computer was a Tandy, which I used my summer job money and $500 my grandparents donated (God bless them for helping me, as it opened the door to so much creativity & possibility.)

I recently shared this story in a G+ comment about IRC, and was encouraged to add it here:

Titled: "A short [personal] history of the web & me"
{
I had to comment because I actually used to run a BBS when I was hardly a teenager [though my friend Sashi's was cooler and had more modems so we did most of the work on his.] I was just telling my gf this story the other day: We would share with others, even chat and had crude text-based games (akin to d&d) on the dial-ins. Ode to the good ol' days of 1200-baud, which may have been my first modem (or slower, but I can't remember exactly.) Those were the days when we used to do anything we could with the simple tech we had, piecing together every little bit we could muster to creatively x'fer every byte possible. I actually remember using HTML 1.0 and I probably will never forget: I was talking to a local computer shop owner and he told me about this magical new 'graphical BBS' and gave me some free software. "Free, really? Cool, thanx man!" (It was 1993.) So I took it home and discovered how to make my first LFS system - it was certainly harder than throwing in a dozen MS DOS diskettes, but man was it rewarding to know I built it myself. I loaded up the early X-windows and dialed into a special server, then using (what we would call today a 'Browser') software loaded the first time I saw modem-data bring back A White Screen which there was text at the top and [OMG!] a picture loaded, with some more text and these clickable "hyperlinks." (In my excitement I tried to show my brother/family but I just don't think they 'got it.') It blew me away though, because of all the BBS stuff my friend and I were doing. That may have been what really captivated me into "Web Technology" as I have been on the bandwagon since :)

So back to IRC & "chat": Sure we talked with others on BBS but that was a little limited. IRC was the original mass chat (for me, to be fair I guess fellows in University had more but I was too young to be enrolled), until ICQ came along. I still actually have and use my original account, which is eight characters and at the time but was then bummed I didn't get on a few months sooner to get a shorter string - haha [check out my G+ profile and hit me up on some ancient-tech.] That was until AIM came out in 1996 and really set [ablaze] what we call "chat" today. AOL had started sending out those metal floppy tins (not to forget CompuServ & Prodigy -ick :P), which were shortly replaced by the _baz1ll1on CDs_ that people started turning into decoration and rearview hangers. (I actually had one whole wall in my teenage room covered as some sort of nerd art between the mothra posters & such. But I digress.) This got the masses into "chatting." It seems to me this was the emergence of "Internet trending" (as it were) when AIM was succeeded by Yahoo! chat, which held its ground well enough and leached off more & more ICQ & AIM users as Yahoo added cool new [chat] features.

Somewhere around there I seriously started dissecting how web technology [HTML] worked, especially this dynamic creature called JavaScript; it was fun (and still is for me.) When 28.8Kbps was FAST and people started coping the flashy graphics like AOL with blinking buttons & text all over their own Geocities accounts, I did a little experiment on my own hosting (probably 16y/o) with just text to produce a very simple and clean design - which would now be called akin to something like Google's style. I think that's why I loved their simplicity so much when they arrived. And it was nice to not have the old link pastures of Yahoo anymore. The rest is not too distant but it sure as fun to just take a walk back to my early teens and think of those humble good ol' days of the Internet. It's really quite awesome to see where we've all taken it, with social features and mobile connectivity the world-over.
I am grateful to have been deeply involved.

When it comes to work, I have focused myself in to simply making the Internet a better place. After a little college @ Cuesta in SLO, I moved down to Southern California to pursue my technical career. (I had done a lot of summer jobs and drove a furniture delivery truck when I lived at home in Paso.)

I got my first corporate job at Interplay Entertainment Corp. which was located in Irvine. I can't even say how cool it was, and what a great way to start my real job experience. I got my foot in the door doing Game Support since I was so good with computers and teaching people. I did that for about a year and in my spare time built our department a support/faq site to help users and streamline our internal operations. That got the attention of the eCommerce Web Manager upstairs and I was soon promoted, trained, and when my supervisor soon went to do something else I received his title. That was a sweet opportunity, I learned a lot from him and was well on my way into the professional web development world. (About this same time I also started donating my free time to an online rave magazine where I built a fully dynamic website @EklipzeMagazine.com; I was the Director of Tech. as well as Media Manager, Writer, etc - and it was a lot of fun. I had to diverge and throw that in because it was such a great experience.) Before my Interplay web mentor left I learned about ColdFusion and when Interplay got bought out, I took that skill out of gaming and into the merger & acquisition world. Worked at that for a few years and then started my own business called SPLITZERO DESIGN @SplitZero.biz, building custom business solutions and other sites while interfacing with EarthLink before & after they had an API, all with quite innovative use of ColdFusion & SOAP. When work was too slow to continue, I moved on to do some corporate CF on patented technologies and from there went on to do Front End Design at an awesome ad agency. After the contract ended, I was hired as Senior Internet Graphic Designer @Harte-Hanks' PennySaverUSA.com, where I soon learned they needed some serious W3c compliance help, so I assumed the additional position of Lead Front End Developer. It was a lot of work but well worth the extra dedication as we redesigned the site, brought in web standards compliance and I even moved them into AJAX and some custom built front end technology. PSUSA eventually outsourced and cut the team, so I took some time to educate myself while dreaming up my next entrepreneurial concept: Ripple FX, an OpenSource web development co. intended to share as much web technology as possible. You see, most web technology is open-text anyway, and everyone shares the basics anyway so I wanted to enhance upon that and offer all my own skill and knowledge with the world to really help make the Internet a better place going forward. The idea is to share not the business rules of clients or anything proprietary, but the templates, the scripts and the underlying open-text that exists in HTML, JS, CSS, etc. Anything that exists in my mind I believe now should be shared and that is my goal. After all, what's it worth under lock & key in the vault of my intellect - this vast sea I have collected needs to be released. And so I have created a blog and wiki to accompany the company site. The blog shares interesting stuff in the [mostly] standard of web logging, and the wiki site will expand into the free library of knowledge I have aforementioned. It's in its infancy now, but soon and hopefully with the help of other great minds, will grow to include front end, back end, scripting, design, seo and social media strategy to name a few. The possibilities are limitless and I want it to be a storehouse for all types of technological information. Free. This is in the spirit of the FSF, whereas it's free like freedom.

I continue to engage awesome career positions, always offering my best to help these companies succeed in every way I can. But in my free time, I have the goal of doing good for the Internet (and in every other way I can in the world around me.) That sums up my present professional sense. It is [however] always growing. Who knows what the future holds: I am excited to engage it.

¸.·´¯`·.¸¸.·´¯`·.¸¸.·´¯`·.¸¸.·´¯`·.¸¸.·´¯`·.¸¸.·´¯`·.¸¸.·

The world around me has always captivated my imagination and I see beauty in every natural thing. Be it the maple leaf or the dew in the morning, the Fibonacci sequence inherant in a spiral galaxy, snail shell and romanesque broccoli, the wonder of a majestic sequoia or simplest forms of life, my heart truly dwells in nature. We are so blessed to have this life and experience all of the wonder this universe has to share with us.

This is the reason that I feel so connected to the world around me. Why I love to hike, why I love all and revere all life, why I garden [organically] and why I do everything I can to clean up the environment in every opportunity that I see something that I can do.

I often stare into space and feel so at home with the beauty of the stars and amazing arm of the milky way as it lights up the sky with innumerable colors and wonders. I wonder about the possibilities beyond our "pale blue dot" and hope for a day when we can reach out and explore the vastness of potentiality that exists infinitely in the expanse of the cosmos. Certainly there must be life teaming and thriving beyond, and it is only a mater of time before we find it. It seems that life cannot help but to pop up and thrive, amidst great environmental perils. Even after utter cosmic destruction, life here as survived and regrown, and I feel it has elsewhere.

We are not alone. Here on earth, in the universe or even by ourselves. We are all connected. Call it God or singularity, there is a vast sea of energy and we are all part of it. We are never alone; we should never despair as such. Open your heart, your eyes [truly] and reach out. Smile because you are one of a googolplex of creative consciousness - every one unique and special unto itself. You are amazing!

¸.·´¯`·.¸¸.·´¯`·.¸¸.·´¯`·.¸¸.·´¯`·.¸¸.·´¯`·.¸¸.·´¯`·.¸¸.·

When I despair, I remember that all through history the ways of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants, and murderers, and for a time they can seem invincible, but in the end they always fall. Think of it--always.” ~Mahatma Gandhi

I changed a lesser review after Dr. Kelly personally resolved my concerns. I was very impressed by this action and appreciate her consideration for the dental needs of myself and family. :) The quality of work at this dentist is top notch and uses very modern practices/technology. They are very friendly and accommodating. I certainly recommend dentist office for PPO subscribers in the Century City area.
