From the early days of programming BASIC on a TRS-80 to the modern digital society, technology has been a constant force in my life. It is, quite literally, at the forefront of my thoughts each and every day. Whether it's adding a new feature to our latest project or brainstorming how technology can improve our lives, I live to find new and exciting ways to utilize the tools our industry's giants have provided.

My career started as a software tester for an automated attendent phone system. From there, I've held a variety of development and strategic positions with both small businesses and major brands such as Acer, Extended Stay America, Citi, and EverBank. These days, I provide both development and stategic insight for DiscoverTec in Jacksonville, Florida - a digital solutions provider specializing in building a strong web presense for large and mid-size organizations.

Wondergrub is my personal brand. Its origin is rooted in the world of XBox Live, where I spent many years honing my skills as a target. While gaming has taken a back seat to raising two amazing daughters, my brand has stuck with me - mainly because I really like the name.
