Professional Experience

CTO/CEO at 4x4 Studios

(2017 – Present)

I started 4x4 to create a reading platform for families. The focus of 4x4 Studios is on family technology. We recently launched version 1.0 of our product on the App Store, which was featured by Apple in the “New Apps We Love” category.

CEO, Full Stack Engineer, UX Designer at DANIEL

(Nov 2010 – Present)

I created a client services business with a team of five Full-Stack Developers and two Designers. We built technology for Atlanta based startups and creative agencies such as Mohawk Flooring, IHG and Caterpillar. I had the privilege of helping 4 developers start their careers at DANIEL from scratch. Our beautiful babies went on to work at such companies as Razorfish, NCR, Deloitte and other creative agencies. Some started companies and became successful freelancers.

Senior Full-Stack Developer at The Supergroup

(2008 – 2010)

I lead development on projects for Disney, Weather.com, and Kimberly Clark among others. One project won the once coveted “Favorite Website Award,” and was nominated for a Webby.

Front End Developer at LogicBomb Media

(2007 – 2008)

I worked on Flash projects when it was the premier platform for the web…in other words, quite a while ago. Our most memorable project was a live video streaming site we did for a haunted house TV show.

Freelance Web Developer

(2006 – 2008)

I started taking small freelance projects in 2006. These were mostly local businesses. I created a portfolio of about 6 projects that paved the way for me to work in Atlanta.
