I've been obsessed with computers ever since my father brought home a 128K Macintosh in 1984. I carried that obsession with me to the Rhode Island School of Design and my early career as a graphic designer. In 1995 Eric Holter asked me to help him start a company "Newfangled Graphics" that specialized in designing for a little known, strange new media known as the "world wide web." I left Newfangled in 1999 to work as a freelance designer and developer and returned in 2004 as a developer.
When I'm not building websites for our clients I'm at home in rural Rhode Island with my wife, four children, two goats, three cats, a rabbit and a few dozen ducks & chickens.
