Piano lessons at 4 with a teacher who couldn’t speak in Waterloo, Iowa. Played trombone and string bass through elementary school and junior high in California. Stuck with bass when dad came home with a 1961 Silvertone electric from a garage sale. Played in top-40 and originals bands throughout the 80’s. Released a couple singles with the band “Native Language”. Burned out on smoke-filled clubs. The waiter gig I used to help pay rent evolved into Food & Beverage management. Was employed as Director of Food & Beverage for Private Golf Clubs and hotels from 1993-2008.
The geek inside me clawed his way out and started free-lancing in 2008. Am proficient in web development, SEO and digital video production. Very well versed in Photoshop,Illustrator, Premiere Pro, After Effects, Dreamweaver, Audition, Edius (NLE from Grass Valley), Microsoft Office Suite, HTML, CSS, PHP, MySQL and others.
