I believe in the future of the web as a first-class mobile application platform, and strive to show apps deployed using web technologies can be every bit as beautiful and engaging as native apps.
Even more things about me:
Once upon a time I played baseball in the Cincinnati Reds organization. As a pitcher I was drafted in the 4th round out of high school in 1996. I had a low 90s sinking fastball, a great slider and a mediocre change up. I played 5 minor league seasons and made it to AAA, but never quite got that, “cup of coffee.” My best season was for the Clinton, Iowa Lumberjacks in 1999 when I led the league in ERA and made the Midwest League All-Star team. Shortly afterwards I was promoted up to AA where I played for the Chattanooga Lookouts.
Music is a large part of my life. I’ve been playing in bands in the Boise music scene since 2002. Over that time span I have been a part of 5 different bands, released 4 albums (soon to be 5), toured the United States and Europe as a live recording engineer for Built to Spill
and played SXSW as a touring guitarist for the band Le Fleur
. I currently play in the band, Dark Swallows with my wife, Ivy. One of my proudest musical accomplishments is recording and mixing a 7″ single for Built to Spill released on record store day 2009.
