Hi again, I'm flattered you want to know more about me.
I am an animator at heart, but a web developer/manager by day. I live in the woods in West Olive, Michigan with my wife and 3 dogs.
With over 25 years of professional experience I have seen and done a lot. It still surprises me how often I will be presented with an idea or project where no one has asked "why" yet. Sure we CAN make a QR code take you to a User Generated Content page with Augmented Reality markers, but why? What are you really trying to accomplish?
As you hopefully read on the home page, I'm currently working as a Team Lead for Persistent Systems. Working with multiple teams in an Agile environment, I've been able to help create several large software applications.
In the past I've worked for large advertising agencies (MRM Worldwide, Campbell-Ewald) as well as small boutique shops that ranged from 3D production houses (Speedshape, sadly out of business), sweepstakes and games (ePrize/Merkle) and even Macromedia (now Adobe).
Apparently I am somewhat of an anomaly, as my knowledge is spanned across multiple areas, without a true focus on any. I see this as a tactical advantage, because no matter what situation, or role I may find myself in, I have some exposure to it, and can quickly tap into my deep well of knowledge to ensure satisfaction.
Superpowers include quickly understanding client's needs and getting along with everyone on the team.
