In the late 20th Century (circa 1982), two insane individuals came together in a glorious ceremony dedicated to the singular purpose of creating the coolest human being ever conceived. Unfortunately, they failed to hit the mark and wound up with me.
Luckily for those two, I was the next best thing; an intelligent, passionate, outspoken, risk-taking, fun-loving, thoughtful, creative, cool, extravagant, innately curious, courteous, charming young boy riddled with faults and ready to scoff in the face of authority.
Since my conception, I have experienced a fairly cinematic suburban American childhood: trips to foreign lands, a role in a Shakespearean play, starting position on the JV football team as a defensive lineman, a stint at the prestigious University of Texas at Austin*, several broken bones, various modes of (un)employment, residency in two states, an insatiable internet addiction, and an astounding zero arrests by law enforcement.
A few months after graduation (Fall of 2006) I was looking for better weather and more exciting jobs, so I moved to Los Angeles. First landing in Santa Monica, then two years in West Hollywood, and finally settling in Mid-City.
My adventures in Southern California have been influenced by many different facets of the entertainment industry, but I found a dedicated interest in web development and emerging internet technologies.
I don’t have many long term goals, but I know what I like. So, let’s see what happens.
