I lead implementation and development efforts for Firecat Studio, TEDxSanAntonio, Interactive Ensemble, as well as other companies in the San Antonio & Austin area . Though I am a true internet technology generalist, I excel at web application design as well as information and technical architecture.

I have an uncanny knack for asking the right questions at the right time, solving an underlying problem that makes lots of other problems go away. Insatiably curious and detail-oriented, I chase down the details and the final answers. Most importantly, I'm a firm believer in having fun!
