Some might call me a web dude because I've been on the Internet since the late 80's. The first time I got on the net we used an actual hard-line telephone that we would stick the large phone receiver into a modem box just like in 80's movie War Games. There were no browsers or interface like today and we would access sites by typing in simple DOS commands. We mostly just played games, but thankfully things have come a long way. :)
I started to build my first website in 1995 when there were no programs to build websites, only blank pages that needed code. I still love the code side of the web and always 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 over 15 years and 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'm busy working with a great Fortune 500 company as a Sr SEO Specialist in their major automotive 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 biggest 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 an editor for a fantasy football site where I publish regular articles on fantasy football. 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.
