I came to L.A. on a dare in 2002. Previously I had been a bookseller running an independant bookstore in Columbia, Maryland for a decade. During that time my interest in computers and programming was piqued. After several dead-end jobs in data-entry, I quit my minimum-wage job to try my hand at doing web development professionally instead of as a side-line. Since then, I've been part of several wonderful companies, working with amazing people.

I live in L.A. county with my book collection, my bass guitar, Barbie, and a very spoiled cat.
