My formal education is from the University of North Dakota, where I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design & New Art Media. After a successful start as a graphic designer at the great ad agency, Ad Monkeys in Grand Forks, ND, I dove headlong into learning web development.
Passionate about perfecting my craft, I took a position with the North Dakota University System Core Technology Services as a Web Applications Developer in 2013. Additionally, I became a father and cofounded Skosh Interactive, L.L.C the same year. Besides full stack development and IT Consulting, we have helped clients through designing logos, building websites, and establishing their brands. As of January 2016, I began working remotely as a front-end engineer at Kaggle, where I am helping make data science easier to do.
My wife and I, with our three kids, dog, and cat live in Grand Forks, ND. I love woodworking, chess, basketball, disc golf, video games, and learning new things.
I'm at home with mockup or charting software such as Balsamiq or Lucidchart, and love using the Adobe Creative Suite ( Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop). I've done a fair bit of photography, and am particular when it comes to writing copy.
