For the past 17 years I have been creating commercial websites and user interfaces for organizations such as Coke, JVC, Cox Business, and NOAA. I started my design career in print in the early '90s in my hometown of Cincinnati, and then carried those skills into a teaching position at Cincinnati Technical & Community College. In 1995 clients began to pay for websites, so I transitioned my skillset into web design.
In 1997 I moved to Atlanta to work for MindSpring/Earthlink as a full-time web designer. I relocated to Portland, Oregon in 2004 to work for IPNS and Standard TV & Appliance. My wife and I now live in Seattle, where we write novels and dote upon our Manx cat.
