Some call me the web dude because I've been on the Internet since the late 1980's. The first time I got on the net was using a hard-line telephone that would use a large phone receiver that plugged into a modem box just like in 80's movie War Games. There were no browsers or interface and we would access sites by typing in simple DOS commands.
I started building my first website in 1995. There were no programs to build websites. There were only blank pages that needed code. I still love the code side of the web and love checking out source code for cool websites, new UI features that wow users, and other web interests that grab me. Since I've been working on web development, Internet strategies, and online marketing for 20 years, I've seen the fads come and go, the giants that looked mighty get knocked off, and every year or so another big player come along. I'm pretty hard to impress on the web, but happy to be allow myself the opportunity.
Currently, I work with a great Fortune 500 company as a Sr SEO Specialist in their men's lifestyle division. The collection of sites generate millions of visitors and are some of the most recognizable brands names in market. I also design and build websites privately for clients, blog for several sites and share my expertise in Social Media Marketing, website and UI design, fantasy sports, and a few other topics.
One of my most passionate hobbies is playing fantasy sports and have numerous championships to my name in both fantasy football and baseball. I write and maintain my own fantasy sports blog, as well as write for several fantasy football sites. I play in a dozen or more leagues per year, as well as commish around a half of dozen of them. Some are for money, where others are for bragging rights and research.
I enjoy playing sports like basketball, riding bikes, wrestling, and playing with my kids. When I'm not on the computer or my iPhone, I'm usually at home hanging out with the family or working on one of the many projects I'm involved with. My door is always open and I'm happy to help and share my knowledge. Feel free to contact me and let's connect.
