I’m a native of Lancaster County, PA and build custom websites using WordPress + Genesis for RedX and others. Web dev is exciting for me because I love to imitate God’s creative work in nature. There’s something insanely cool about combining intricate design, harmonious colors, and eye-catching aesthetics, then wrapping in all up into a lean, efficient bundle of code. Off work, I spend time with family & friends, romp with my dog Texas, and help non-verbal people communicate using eye-gaze technology.
