Web Developer - Techincal Director - Idea Man
I lead implementation and development efforts for Firecat Studio, SACADA, TEDxSanAntonio, and other companies in the San Antonio & Austin area . Though I am a true internet technology generalist, I excel at web application design strategy and implementation, as well as information and technical architecture. Before going freelance, I worked at USAA as an Interaction Designer and Web Producer for 11 years. There I helped to create and support their initial Intranet and Internet sites, defining strategy, process and implementation.
Pre-interwebs I developed multimedia applications for touch screen kiosks, desktop PCs as well as building a self-serve digital photo booth (about ’95). 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 important: I'm a firm believer in having fun!
