Bringing it All With You
Life never seems to go in a straight line. While attending high school in Los Angeles, CA my dream was to become an architect. I took lots of classes and moved on to college. In college the left brain engineering bug caught up with me and I started taking classes in general and civil engineering.
So I pursued this career tract for a couple of years and, like so many college students, I changed my major. I ended up working for the government as a land use planner which gave me a chance to actually be around both engineers and architects, but in a completely different manner than what I had envisioned.
As it turns out, all of those experiences count. My engineering background taught me to focus on the details, which I now use to write the code that makes these websites move. The idea of design never went away. I discovered that many of my cousins and their families landed in the design and fine arts fields. I did not discover this until my adult life, as many of us moved around the country. So now I know, I am a bit left brained, but a whole lot creative on the right side.
I have had this design bug for quite some time, which suits me just right. I now live and work in Santa Barbara, CA with my wife Gail, and occasionally Chucky, the neighborhood cat.
