Tools and Tech
I am always looking to explore new and exciting things. Some of the tools and tech. I work with:
For Fun Stuff
Fender History Quiz
Which guitar? Quiz
Guitar Tuner App
I am a true fan of the www because it’s in a state of constant growth. To understand the capabilities of web-based platforms one must be a practitioner, a daily doer, an inveterate inventor.
I’ve been working with color, images and text since the late 90s when I discovered Mac and Photoshop. The relationship to play had me hooked.
When the digital revolution exploded I jumped in and taught myself how to construct intuitive websites. Working predominantly with musicians, visual artists and entertainment interests, it was like the Wild West – anything was possible – and I’ve never lost that sense of adventure.
In early 2009 I went back to school to update my technical and coding skills, receiving an AS in Computer Technology. As a freelancer, my current client roster runs the gamut from a boutique hotel in Costa Rica to two world class vintage guitar shops. I am nothing if not diverse.
My strength as a developer lies in the fact that I have both left and right brain talents. I have an artist’s eye and an engineer’s methodology. I haven’t lost the sense of wonder. I know anything is possible.
A little More About Me
In addition to being a developer I am a guitarist/songwriter/singer and home recording engineer/producer. I have payed guitar in and fronted numerous Seattle bands. I collect and refurbish all sorts of vintage musical instruments and gear. I have scratch-built many guitar effects pedals and tube amplifiers. I have a Chihuahua named Cisco and two cats, Stanley and Bell.
