Hello. I'm a web developer residing in River Falls, Wisconsin. Photography, videography, marketing, non-fiction writing, coding and service to community is what I'm into. I maintain this web site to develop my skills as a web developer and to feature my interests.

Evenings and Weekends
Served as an illustrator and psychological operations specialist in the US Army Reserve during the early 1990s.
Served on the River Falls city council and utility board in the early 2000s. Currently a member of the River Falls Plan Commission.
Serving on the board of directors for Grow to Share, a charitable organization that provides fresh produce to our community food shelf.
Graduated from Northeast Metro Technical College (Century College), White Bear Lake, Minnesota in 1993.

Fishing and cooking are fun, but I don't like to cook fish. Gardening is a good idea, but kayaking lakes and streams is a better idea. I ride my bicycle to work (almost) every day, even in the winter. My spouse and children are fantastic and my dog is a fearful and troubled creature.
