Work History

In 1998, I started making websites. And never stopped.

At age 17, I founded Neat Focus, becoming a freelance interface designer. With a tiny team of heavy-hitters, I’ve helped small businesses, bootstrapped teams, venture capital funded startups and Fortune 500 50 corporations.

School History

I cut nearly every class in middle school and high school. With the newfound free time, some talented friends & I collaborated on writing, building websites, recording radio shows and shooting video.

Due to money and stubbornness, I skipped college and started a business. See Work History.
